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.
The Maltz Museum is proud to be a community partner for the Stokes: Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future 2017 year-long celebration. Get involved at stokes50cle.com #stokes50cle
