Comics@CSUN sponsors a discussion of comics, the Civil Rights movement, and antiracist activism.

March: A Virtual Teach-In

On Thursday, November 19, 2020, at 9:30-10:45 am, Comics@CSUN is offering a free Zoom webinar about John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell’s March trilogy, one of the most acclaimed comics of the past decade, and a timely reminder of the ongoing struggle for civil rights, including voting rights. Click here to register!

March is the graphic memoir of revered Congressman and activist John Lewis, as well as a history of the Civil Rights movement from about the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s. This stirring, profound, and timely trilogy is being taught by many CSUN teachers this term. Several are getting together, along with guest scholars Jorge Santos and Qiana Whitted, to share thoughts about reading, learning from, and teaching this work, and to talk with students and other readers about what the work may mean today, at this fraught moment of American political and social transition.

Registrants will have the opportunity to submit questions for Q&A beforehand. Video of the event will hopefully be provided afterward, for independent viewing.

Please help Comics@CSUN spread the word about this special event! Feel free to send questions to organizer [.]
