Jerry Craft is an award-winning graphic novel author and illustrator. His latest books, New Kid and Class Act depict young African-Americans in ways that have been in short supply in books – as normal, family loving, ordinary people. This interview with Jerry includes more information on these books, and his thoughts on being a writer. His audience is made of middle school and probably older kids, so this video should be available for his readers. This video was originally published on May 5, 2021.
