Wakanda Forever: Centering Black Experiences on Screen

February 8 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm MST

During this engaging event, Dr. Peniel Joseph will discuss recent efforts to center the Black perspective and address issues of race and racism through television and film adaptations of comic books, such as Black Panther, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Watchmen, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The presentation—which will be followed by a panel discussion—will explore the evolution of these stories from paper to screen, discuss successes and failures in representation of the Black experience through these media, and offer perspective on where future storytelling could and should go.

Registration link coming soon.
