Latino and African American comics have been traditionally sidelined in the mainstream. During Hispanic Heritage Month, The Ohio State University Office of Diversity and Inclusion will host the first annual SÕL-CON: The Brown + Black Comix Expo 2015. Visit the site for more information, the schedule and to register.
This three-day event includes a Grand Expo where authors/artists will feature their work, comic book creating workshops for high school and middle school students, academic panels, and featured conversations with the artists.
With a grand expo space for participants, along with academic panels and how-to workshops, this will be the first venue to bring together Latino and African American comic book talent and intellectual creativity.
