MARCH: The Power of Student Voices

April 11, 2018 |
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Today's students are raising their voices to achieve social change, embracing the power and promise of the First Amendment. Congressman John Lewis's National Book Award Winning graphic novel memoir MARCH, brought to life through the master draftsmanship of cartoonist Nate Powell with writer Andrew Aydin, provides a vivid but practical touchstone to inspire today's student leaders. Join us for a discussion about March, the First Amendment, and student activism with Abena Hutchful, coordinator of National Coalition Against Censorship's Youth Free Expression Program and Kids' Right to Read Project; Jonathan W. Gray, Associate Professor of English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and author of Civil Rights in the White Literary Imagination: Innocence by Association; and Kai Texel, cartoonist of Be Heard! Protecting Your Protest Rights moderated by Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Executive Director and Art of March co-curator Charles Brownstein.
