Parallel Days in Quarantine

Group: Rose Nguyen ’23 & Kaitlyn Williams ’22

We created a comic book about two children who, despite being best friends, have contrasting experiences of COVID-19. In this short illustrative book, we are interested in pushing the audience to visualize the inequalities in daily life that are exacerbated by COVID-19 and its impacts on low-income communities of color. In addition, we want to emphasize our social responsibilities towards each other in keeping one another safe. Social distancing isn’t meant to take away privileges, but rather to protect the most vulnerable in our society.
