In honor of Black History Month, enjoy the latest comic strip, “On Their Shoulders” by cartoonist Manny Burgos of East New York, Brooklyn.

“The north part of my neighborhood, Cypress Hills, is where numerous noted figures of Black History are interred. This strip looks at a few of them, as well as honors a long-time resident of Cypress Hills who passed away a few days ago, Roy Sawyer. RIP Roy!”
