We will hear from Mohammad Sabaaneh, Palestinian graphic artist and author of White and Black: Political Cartoons from Palestine, as well as Anthony Louis-Jeune, Creator of the first Haitian superhero, Djatawo. We will hear from the two artists on why they choose comics as a means of addressing societal issues facing their native countries, such as environmental issues, pervasive violence, and education.
We will also be providing copies of White and Black: Political Cartoons from Palestine as well as Djatwo to the workshop's participants.
Participants are required to read both books before attending the workshop.
Following the artist talks, we will hear from the Kevorkian Center's 2016- 2017 Teacher Fellows on their curriculum projects over lunch. For more information on the Kevorkian Center's Teacher Fellowships, including benefits and how to apply, please see this link.
