On The Radar-Upcoming Event

As I close out the Spring semester, I wanted to make sure I shared this upcoming event:

May 20th, 2021 (8pm/ET)Art Design Chicago Now Program/Terra Foundation for American Art presents, “The Past and Future of Comics”

Art by Bianca Xunise

The future of comic books belongs to Black women. In many cases drawing on Afrofuturism to tell their own stories, Black women comic book artists and writers are redefining the genre and innovating new ways to think about identity, race, and gender. Join Black future feminist and pop culture scholar Dr. Grace D. Gipson and Chicago cartoonist Bianca Xunise (Say Her Name) for a conversation about the history and future of comic books in Chicago and the real superheroes of the genre: Black women authors and illustrators, and their protagonists.

This program is free to all with registration. Registered guests will receive the link to watch via email in advance of the premiere. The event will premiere on YouTube on May 20th at 7pm/CT (8 pm/ET).
