Latinx Comics Lecture by Frederick Luis Aldama

“Real & Reel Latinx Lives Matter!” Frederick Luis Aldama will unzip his brain, offering a multimedia extravaganza of all things Latinx pop culture in the 21st century. Thursday April 18th at Foster Auditorium from 4:00 to 6:00.

Following the success of his most recent book, Latinx Superheroes in Mainstream Comics, Frederick Luis Aldama brings the experience of his book to life in a full-fledged documentary. In it, Aldama brings together academics, comics scholars, artists and content creators from across the Latinx community and its allies as they examine the history of Latinx characters in comic books. From Zorro to Miles Morales, from the racist caricatures of the past to the inspiring and uplifting Latinx superheroes of the modern day, Latinx Superheroes in Mainstream Comics: The Documentary serves as a vehicle to bring forth the experiences, opinions, hopes and perspectives of Latinx creators who are changing the landscape of American comic books that will inspire new generations of comic book creators.
