In Conversation: ­­­­­­­­­­­­With Juliana "Jewels" Smith, Regine Sawyer, Barbara Brandon Croft and Tara Nakashima Donahue

Sunday, June 214-6pm

Bringing together four innovators in the field of comic books and graphic novels, this panel seeks to include narratives that are often absent from larger discourses in the genre and explore comic books as sites of activism, ownership and agency. While the voices of women and people of color are considered underrepresented in mainstream comic culture, this panel will expand upon the power of comics to rewrite women and people of color as heroes. Through unpacking the dominant discourse and highlighting their own methods of combating marginalization, this panel will invite the audience to expand their own understandings of comic culture today.  CLICK HERE!
