Clarence Adams, African American, was serving in the US Army and fighting in the Korean War when he was captured by the North Koreans in 1950. While serving as a POW in North Korea, China took over the administration of his POW camp and Clarence for the first time felt like he was treated as an equal to Whites by the Chinese administration. This led to Clarence deciding to patriate to China (along with 21 other American POWs) at the end of the war, rather than return to the racism and unequal treatment he knew in Memphis, TN. Clarence lived a wonderful life in China where he met and married his wife, Liu Linfeng in 1957. After 12 years in China, the Chinese cultural revolution forced him and his family to ultimately move back to the US, where he and his wife would manage a successful Chinese restaurant chain with 4 locations. Clarence passed in 1999 and Liu passed in 2007, but their daughter finished her father’s memoirs and published a book on their life in 2007 entitled, An American Dream.






I drew this in a fugue state. It felt like the easiest thing in the world. I love Due South. I especially Love Ben and Ray K’s dynamic, and how Ray wears thick-rimmed glasses when he’s aiming his gun. I also love the manga FAKE, which always had these great flowery book covers, and i felt like these two things needed to be brought together. So here you are.

I’ll have prints of this at HeroesCon and Flamecon! You can also buy a print online here

that nineties yaoi manga aesthetic is so strong

this is peak 90s fandom in every way
