On his way home from work Jerome is killed by the police.  His younger sister doesn't know how to handle it.   At the trial, even though Jerome was unarmed the officers are acquitted.   Enraged, Kaneesha sets upon a journey of Justice.  Along the way she must decide if militancy or nonviolence is the correct path to seek equality.   I wrote this graphic novel after seeing multiple abuses visited upon the people of neighborhood in Gary, Indiana.  Kaneesha is a fictional story that is based in the reality of what it is like in places like Gary.  

The graphic Novel is 100% finished and simply needs funding to be printed.   Any support is greatly appreciated.  There are several rewards to choose from.   There will also be stretch goals as well.
