Join Christian Cooper, Marie Javins, and Alitha E. Martinez for an in-depth conversation about personal experiences, unheard voices, and social revolution in comics and graphic novels.
REPRESENT!: Stories of Personal Experiences, Unheard Voices, and Social Change – a Panel
Our country and our culture are on the brink of change, of an evolution—no—a revolution. As visual storytellers, we are positioned to present visions of social change by reaching out to unheard voices. In collaboration with creators traditionally underrepresented in comics, the Represent! Series ensures that this transformative moment in civil rights history is honored, preserved, and shared.
These compelling 10-page digital stories will spring from the real-life experiences of our contributors, beginning with Cooper’s semi-fictionalized account of his very real evolution from a kid with a pair of binoculars to thrust into a worldwide spotlight after his altercation with a dog owner in Central Park.
