S.P.I.C. ''The Storyboard of My Life'' - Getting Suspended

Posted on: June 10, 2004 | Views: 21 | Comment

A caricature of his teacher and principal got him suspended.

Five stories of real life, sketched and narrated by the artist: "When me and my family moved to Chelsea, Massachussetts, we had to deal with racism. Kids called me and my brothers 'spics' and told us it meant 'Special Person In Chelsea.'" More fascinating vignettes.
