Civil rights leaders have long used the communicative power of the combined image and word to discuss voter registration, nonviolent resistance, and human rights. Inspired by the graphic novel trilogy March, co-written by Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell, Joseph R. Givens (Louisiana State University), Andrew Aydin (March: Book One; Georgetown University), Stanford Carpenter (Institute for Comics Studies), Damian Duffy (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), and John Jennings (University of New York at Buffalo) will discuss the rich history of creative collaboration between civil rights leaders and comic creators.
