Graphic Novels and Their Use as Tools of Tolerance and Diversity #comicsculture

Despite common assumptions, graphic novels have been utilized as tools for social commentary and instruments of change. They can be used to defuse anger, to expose the reader to diverse cultures and experiences, to teach tolerance, and to address diversity in our schools and in our worlds. Educators Eric Kallenborn, Ronell Whitaker, and Claire Overton discuss the intertwining history of comics, social justice, feminism, and censorship, and how these things shape our view of the medium.
This event was part of our Graphic Novel Symposium: http://ext.morainevalley.edu/comicsculture/
