Black Dad Sells Comics to Put Daughter Through College

I am so happy to see this story! It combines my love of Black people, my love of comic books and my love of family into one amazing story!

His daughter started kindergarten early and graduated from high school. She plans to attend Fisk (an HBCU) in the fall.

“As all parents who have college-age kids, we started putting together what it was going to cost and what we needed to do,” the Seattle father told ABC News. “You start looking at those options you have, and my comic books were an option. That’s when I looked at their value, and I’m now trying to find a good home for them.”

Sanders’ daughter, Rose, is super smart, and as such, she’s graduating from high school early in June to attend Fisk University in Nashville, Tenn., this fall.


Talk about a feel good story!
