I got the chance to speak with Barajas and Gonzo about this groundbreaking work, published by Top Cow Productions, an imprint of Image Comics. We spoke about the importance of telling our histories as people of color who have been erased and more importantly the pressure of bringing those stories to life. Barajas details his choice to improve the negative moments in Tata Rambo's life as well as the heroic activist ones. Gonzo dives into the influences on his art and recreating the time period in clothing and furnishings. But most importantly, they explain the importance the project means to them. So click play on the audio above and take a listen.

To keep up with their work you can follow Barajas at @HenryBarajas on Twitter and you can follow Gonzo at @jGonzoArt on Twitter or visit his website For Gonzo's other work, El Mano del Destino, you can head here.
