February, Thursday 25th: Cowboy in High Cotton

 Our exploration of Les Bandes Dessinées continues this evening with the eightieth comic album of the  Lucky Luke series (the third collaboration between cartoonist Achdé and screenwriter Jul.) entitled  “A Cowboy in High Cotton”. Our member, Didier Bourceaux, will guide us through the story of the infamous Lonesome Cowboy that begins when a rich widow and admirer of his exploits bequeaths him a 250 acre cotton plantation in Louisiana.

This time, Lucky Luke confronts racism in the plantations of the southern United States and introduces us to a character who really existed, Bass Reeves, the first African-American deputy marshal west of the Mississippi. 

Perhaps, art imitates life. What lessons are Achdé and Jul asking us to learn through this famous cowboy? Join us to see what Didier has to say about that and much more!
