Artwork by Michelle Sayles

Najawa: A Story of Palestine is a 45’ long comic piece created by


artist Michelle Sayles in the summer of 2015. The comic tells the
story of a Palestinian woman’s life in decade snapshots as she navigates
her country under occupation, ending with a vision of future liberation.
The story synthesizes together oral history, documentary, and media
accounts of life in occupied Palestine to raise awareness about the
history of the ongoing Palestinian/Israeli conflict.

Sayles collaborated in the development of this project with


Vermont-based artist and educator Jen Berger, and
Vermonters for a Just Peace in Palestine/Israel.
