Students and young adults are invited to create expressive art and designs based on their experiences with the artwork displayed in the BICLM exhibit STILL… Racism in America. Father/daughter cartoonists Brumsic Brandon Jr. and Barbara Brandon-Croft independently created the work shown in STILL between the 1960s and the present day, frequently reflecting on similar themes of social justice, racial disparities, and hope. As students take in the satire and harsh truths about the prevalence and history of racism in our society, they will be guided by cartoonist and instructor J.M. Hunter to lend their own voices to the cause by utilizing their personal visual expression. Basic cartooning concepts and methods will be covered. No previous drawing experience required.

All materials required will be provided. FREE EVENT. 

 J.M. Hunter is an MFA in Comics graduate, writer, artist, painter, and advocate for the arts and comics, especially dealing with memoir and speculative fiction amidst marginalized groups and people. He continues to advocate for space as well as pursue hybrid mediums and expression.
