Description from The Hagop Kevorkian Center’s website:

We will hear from Mohammad Sabaaneh, Palestinian graphic artist and author of White and Black: Political Cartoons from Palestine, as well as Anthony Louis-Jeune, Creator of the first Haitian superhero, Djatawo. We will hear from the two artists on why they choose comics as a means of addressing societal issues facing their native countries, such as environmental issues, pervasive violence, and education.

We will also be providing copies of White and Black: Political Cartoons from Palestine as well as Djatwo to the workshop’s participants.

Participants are required to read both books before attending the workshop.
