AFAM 2623 Comics, Race, and Representation

4 semester hours

Comic books are considered one of only two original American art forms (jazz is the other), and American culture is thoroughly imbued with their influence and iconography. This course explores perspectives and debates concerning the way comic books have presented, engaged, promoted, and rejected notions related to race, particularly Black racial formations, in America.
