UC Davis historian Chuck Walker talks about the joys and challenges of writing a graphic history (comic) on Juan Bautista Tupac Amaru for Oxford University Press. The brother of the leader of a 1780 Andean rebellion, Tupac Amaru was imprisoned for decades in Peru, Spain and the Spanish enclave of Ceuto in northern Africa before arriving in newly independent Argentina in 1822 as an Inca king.

Walker holds the MacArthur Foundation Endowed Chair in International Human Rights and directs the Hemispheric Institute on the Americas at UC Davis. He is the author of the award-winning book, The Tupac Amaru Rebellion, and many other publications on Peruvian history.
