Summary
In January 2002, the United States sent a group of Muslim men they suspected of terrorism to a prison in Guantanamo Bay. They were the first of roughly 780 prisoners who would be held there-and 40 inmates still remain. Eighteen years later, very few of them have been ever charged with a crime. In'Guantanamo Voices', journalist Sarah Mirk and her team of diverse, talented graphic novel artists tell the stories of ten people whose lives have been shaped and affected by the prison, including former prisoners, lawyers, social workers, and service members. This collection of illustrated interviews explores the history of Guantanamo and the world post-9/11, presenting this complicated partisan issue through a new lens.
