Awesome and Short Sikh Graphic Novel

Introduce Sikhism to your students with this terrific short graphic novel by Josh Kramer.  The Wilson Quarterly published it in its fall 2015 issue..

Students will learn about Guru Nanak,  the founder of Sikhism, in the Punjab area of India around 1500CE.

And they will also  learn about the tenth and final Guru, Gobind Singh,  who handed down the holy scripture called the Granth Sahib and also the customs and traditions that exist today. Those customs are called the Khalsa and include an interesting code called the 5 K's.

Many people confuse Sikhs with Muslims and some Sikhs face discrimination and violence which is why students shuld learn about them.
