  1. Sometimes you don t know how big a deal an event will be in the shaping of history when you are going through it I m thinking of battles in Vietnam that were important to the outcome of the war, such as the battle of Hamburger Hill, which was just one battle, but turned out to be something we look back on as a turning point Such is sort of the case with the 2001 riots in Cincinnati, which Dan Moore lived through in this slim graphic history of a city among many living through daily racial violen [...]



  2. This book was originally published as Mark Twain Was Right The 2001 Cincinnati Riots by Dan P Moore The P apparently stands for M ndez And this isn t a reprint They literally took existing copies of Mark Twain was Right and slapped new covers on them The first page inside the front cover of Six Days is the original front cover of Twain The first page inside the new back cover is the original back cover, complete with original ISBN a different one, I might add, from the Six Days version It s the [...]


  3. Another great win from FirstReads I was pretty clueless about this at the time it happened I wish there events had made Black Lives Matter unnecessary, that we had learned the right lessons over a decade ago Sadly, the same issues still exist These was an interesting look at the events of 2001 I look forward to non fiction graphic novels like this one.


  4. I don t love the art and narration, but I have to admire the interviews and the treatment of something that mattered so much and is so easily forgotten It is horrifying that there could have been protest and riots over the police killing Black men in 2001, and that it could still seem like a relatively new issue in 2017 Even knowing that a few months later something was going to happen that was going to capture everyone s attention and override other discussions, it still feels like we have gott [...]



  5. Six Days In Cincinnati originally titled Mark Twain Was Right The 2001 Cincinnati Riots tells the story of the 2001 Cincinnati Riots following the death of Timothy Thomas at the hands of police As a piece of comics journalism, this is incredibly effective Dan Moore tells the story as a person who was there, but also interviewed many of those involved from a wide variety of perspectives The story is well told, and well put together I knew basically nothing about this before reading this other tha [...]


  6. Also published under the title Mark Twain Was Right The 2001 Cincinnati Riots, this short comic was informative and personal, with lots of eyewitness accounts It reminded me of Joe Sacco s Palestine, looking at a situation through individual stories of those who were there I d like to see this as part of a larger collection documenting other incidents, but ad a stand alone piece of comics journalism, it s good.


  7. An interesting way to portray this event in history Certainly much of what happened lends itself to the format of graphic novel I don t think it is a completely unbiased version of what happened but most history is written from the author s perspective.I received this book as part of a good reads giveaway but the opinions expressed are solely my own.


  8. Super informative I didn t know anything about the police shooting of Timothy Thomas and the protests that took place in Cincinnati in the early 2000s Though I didn t love the illustration style, I found this book engaging and enlightening about the histories that we sometimes do not talk about.


  9. An interesting telling of the protest in Cincinnati If you don t know what happened then I highly advice looking it up If not, it s hard to make sense of the book Confusing without prior knowledge, I googled the riots.



  10. An important, moving story The pacing is excellent, and the inclusion of participants voices with the history is seamless.


  11. Police violence and race relations are important topics, and the passion and energy of the creator help this example of street journalism rise above his unpolished art and writing I do wish he hadn t inserted himself into the narrative quite so much, as he was mostly a bystander who watched the action on the news I would rather that space had been devoted to details about the riots and their aftermath.I find it odd that this book seems to consist of a brand new cover literally glued over the co [...]


  12. This is a quick comic book from the perspective of a teenager who attended Walnut Hills High School at the time of the 2001 Cincinnati riots Some of the story is based on personal involvement in protests and interviews with other participants Not too in depth, so I ll need to read Behind The Lines The Untold Story of the Cincinnati Riots too.The title of this book comes from a rather apocryphal quote attributed to Mark Twain When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it [...]


  13. If the world comes to an end, I want to be in Cincinnati Everything comes there ten years later Mark Twain Ignited by the police killing of Timothy Thomas, the Cincinnati riots broke out ten years after the 1991 police beating of Rodney King and the L.A riots Dan P Moore s graphic novel reports some of the story from his direct observation, and the rest through a series of flashback interviews with others who were directly involved Read


  14. A graphic telling of popular uprisings in Cincinnati in 2001 in the wake of the police murder of a young black man that followed several police shootings There are some nice graphic elements the particulars of Timothy Thomas story are captured in a nine frame motif that is revealed out of order over the course of the week that is depicted in the book Moore places himself as the narrator while also giving voice to several others who were there by devoting several frames or even pages to their fir [...]


  15. This was very personal, and at the same time pretty good reportage and, to me, totally new info about a place I have spent plenty of time I realize there was an agenda in it, but I could have used even , just to guide the narrative to a satisfying end Of course, the ending of the story isn t satisfying, so trying to get that out of it might have rung false.


  16. I give this book three stars for it s intention was good And having experienced the curfew and having witnessed some of the rioting, this story is close to home Mr Moore s drawing skills are not that strong, but I feel he did a terrific job within his means.



  17. While I really liked this slim recount of the 2001 Cincinnati riots, I felt that so much needed to be explained For someone not alive at that time, too young to remember or a recent transplant to Cincinnati, there is too much insider information and not enough explanation but I do understand the mission was to write a memoir, not a nonfiction text.Grade 8 and up.
