11:00 AM
Minority Report
A long practiced tradition of comic books, films and entertainment institutions have designed the best and most compelling roles to be filled by mainly white men and women as the protagonist. Minority characters, often times were limited to playing stereotypical, supportive or comedic roles to their superior, established archetype. For some time this was the foundation and standard of American made comics, television and film. With equal rights, feminism and the modern American renaissance, the roles of minority characters in comic books, television and film are changing and there have been new opportunities for characters of color. However, many of the old guard that still actively practice a tradition of exclusion and continue to assign the best roles to Caucasians and the stereotypical supportive roles to minorities are still abundant. We will explore how far we, as a country, have really come, when it comes to these roles. We will discuss where we are going and what it will take to get there. Join Orlando Harding (Night Stalker, RRH) Hannibal Tabu (The Bur Pyle), Koi Turnbull (Fathom), Scott Lobdell ( Teen Titans, X- Men) and Janeshia Adams Ginyard (Black Panther)  for this in depth discussion on the ever changing roles of people of color in comics, television and film.

1:00 PM 
Hip Hop and Comics.

Hip-hop and comics are two American art forms that bring together disparate elements to create vast worlds of creativity. They share much common ground-rappers and graffiti artists utilize super heroic imagery and adopt larger-than-life alter egos; MCs and producers assemble universes with words and sound; comic creators draw on hip-hop’s rich visual vocabulary and incorporate music, dance, and fashion into the fabric of their stories. Here, Orlando Harding (Night Stalker, RRH) brings together an all-star group of graphic artists and musical innovators to discuss the ties between these two creative cultures. Hannibal Tabu (The Buy Pile, Drum Voices) and Larry Houston ( Producer X-Men, Captain Planet) will thrill you with their current projects, their views on where the industry is now heading and their vision of the new modern age of Hip Hop and Comics.
