Black Nerd Problems: Depictions of African Americans in Popular Media

When: Wed., March 15, 7-8:30 p.m. 2017

From the recent success of Luke Cage to the controversy surrounding nontraditional casting in the upcoming Spiderman film, we can see how African Americans have fit, been positioned, or sometimes snuck into, the media we digest and how they factor into entertainment. Co-creator and editor-in-chief of Black Nerd Problems (blacknerdproblems.com), William Evans delves deep into what science fiction, comics and other popular media say about black life. Includes admission to the Museum and This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement, so arrive early to tour the exhibition.

Price: $12 general, $6 Maltz Museum
