Not Your Sidekick: Heroes of Color Take Center Stage

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From Marvel's Kamala Khan to Star Wars's Finn, characters of color are finally taking on the pilot's seat/captain's chair/chosen one's mantle and being positioned front and center in entertainment. But how far has it come and how far does it still have to go? A dynamic group of creators and expert commentators who have all had a hand in crafting powerful protagonists of color will discuss issues of representation and authenticity, writing from their experiences, the unique pressure put on diverse characters, and how audiences can best support these characters to usher in a whole new era of POC heroes. With Marc Bernardin (Genius), Shalisha Francis (Minority Report), Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The 100, The Middleman), Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex) and Dr. Andrea Letamendi (The Arkham Sessions).
