3:00 - 4:00 pm, IMAGE, ACTIVISM, AND AUTOBIOGRAPHY in the White Oak Room, featuring Ebony Flowers and Sylvia Nickerson
For many autobiographical cartoonists, the personal truly is political. From direct participation in protests and political unrest, to suffering the effects of gentrification, to horrifying encounters with the police, to exploring self-image, each of the cartoonists on this panel has a unique perspective on recording these narratives. Join moderator and scholar Francesca Lyn as she discusses these issues with Ben Passmore (Your Black Friend And Other Stories), Ebony Flowers (Hot Comb), Bianca Xunise (Say Her Name), Sylvia Nickerson (Creation), and Halfdan Pisket (Deserter).

Join scholar and moderator Isaac Cates as he explores the idea of cartoonists pushing themselves to express uncomfortable and enigmatic ideas with Rikki Villadsen (The Sea), Kevin Huizenga (The River At Night), Eleanor Davis (Why Art?), and Simon Hanselmann (Bad Gateway).
