It's no surprise that [Adeline Koh](http://www.adelinekoh.org/) and [Roopika Risam](http://roopikarisam.com/) are big fans of [Chinua Achebe](http://colorlines.com/archives/2013/03/watch_this_interview_with_african...), the Nigerian author of "Things Fall Apart," who died last Thursday at 82. The creators of the Post Colonial Digital Humanities (DHPoco) [website](http://dhpoco.org/mission-statement-postcolonial-digital-humanities/) and [Tumblr,](http://dhpoco.tumblr.com/tagged/comics/page/3) have been making [Bitstrip comics ](http://www.bitstrips.com/) that celebrate [anti-colonial writers like Achebe](http://dhpoco.tumblr.com/tagged/fanon), defang [academic jargon](http://dhpoco.tumblr.com/tagged/pretentiousness), and call BS on the [notion of colorblind coding](http://dhpoco.tumblr.com/tagged/data). Koh (right pane, avatar in the gray pantssuit) is a faculty fellow at Duke and a postcolonial literature professor at Richard Stockton College. Risam (right pane, avi in red shoes) is up for a doctorate in English at Emory and she'll teach at Salem State University in the fall. With their hands in tech *and* literature, the pair is also [campaigning for people of color and women](http://dhpoco.org/2013/03/21/the-global-women-wikipedia-write-in-gwwi/) to write Wikipedia entries about anti-colonial and feminist women theorists from across the globe. In a strip for Colorlines.com, the DHPoco duo share their favorite piece of Achebe's wisdom. --Editors comic-colorlines-bitstrips.png
