Storytellers have always been at the forefront of political and social change. It's no different for Black comic creators, who have historically used their work to shine a light on how everyday people can overcome injustice and become heroes. Join us for a lively discussion with three nationally-known Black comic creators. This webinar will include an overview of our Behind the Mask: Black Power in Comics exhibit, which is currently on display at the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center. The exhibit uncovers the influence of several generations of comic artists and illustrates how comics have changed as America has changed.
