Allen Ruff talks with graphic artist Seth Tobocman and historian Paul Buhle. They discuss their recently released graphic biography of the renowned movement lawyer, Leonard Weinglass, the famed cases in which he was involved and their meaning for us today.
Seth Tobocman is a radical comic book artist who has been living in Manhattan’s Lower East Side since 1978. Tobocman is best known for his creation of the political comic book anthology. He has been an influential propagandist for the squatting, anti-globalization, and anti-war movements in the United States.
Paul Buhle, a frequent guest of the show, was formerly a Senior Lecturer in American Studies at Brown University. He is the author or editor of over 35 volumes, including histories of radicalism in the U.S. and the Caribbean.
