Event: THE PAST and FUTURE OF COMICS on May 20th 7:00 -8:00 pm CST (8:00 -9:00 pm EST)

The Black Metropolis Research Consortium joins the Chicago Humanities Festival, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) & the Terra Foundation for American Art in sponsoring this program. 

From the work they write to the protagonists they create, Black women are the true superheroes of the comic book genre. Join Black future feminist and pop culture scholar Dr. Grace D. Gipson and Chicago cartoonist Bianca Xunise for a conversation on race, gender, and the past and future of comic books. Dr. Grace Gipson is a 2020-2021 BMRC Fellow.
