“A Map to Wakanda” (August 25-26, 2018)
Location: Miami Dade College / Miami Book Fair
How do we write comics that celebrate diversity and cultural dynamism so that our stories are both universal and specific? How do we translate our skills as writers into the graphic medium and include fully realized characters of different backgrounds, with flaws and challenges they must overcome and learn to cope with, characters who possess their own hopes, dreams and agency and are not merely defined by one or two characteristics? How can other genres – Caribbean folktales for example – be “translated” into comics, and how can these comics become a catalyst in helping readers “see” the humanity of people who have traditionally been dehumanized?
