MORRIE TURNER created the Wee Pals comic strip in 1964. Appearing first in Ebony and Black World magazines, it soon became the first comic strip featuring a multi-ethnic cast of characters to appear in metropolitan newspapers. Explore Black History with Wee Pals, published by Just Us Books, brings back many of those entertaining but instructive strips.
