On January 30, 2020, 6:00 to 8:00pm, the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) will host an artist talk with Edgardo Miranda-Rodríguez. The talk will be held in the context of the current exhibition “The Color of Power: Heroes, Sheroes, & Their Creators” [see previous post Caribbean Cultural Center Comic Book Exhibit Inspiring Young Artists of Color]. The CCCADI is located at 120 East 125th Street New York, New York.
Description: Calling all superhero/shero lovers/fanatics! Many of us consume superhero/shero stories daily, immersing ourselves in their fantastic worlds. We see ourselves in their backstories, super strengths, and weaknesses. However, rarely do these characters, that we so love, have their narratives, or their creators, reflected in our actual diverse world. Our current exhibition The Color of Power: Heroes, Sheroes, & Their Creators explores these issues.
Join us for our monthly exhibition program where we will be delving into the world of Black comics to explore the depths and nuances of this famed genre. On this occasion, exhibition curator and creator of La Borinqueña, Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez of Somos Arte, will be talking about the fascinating process of creating this much needed Afro-Boricua SuperShero. Make sure to bring your La Borinqueña comics because the talk will be followed by a signing.
WHEN: Thursday, January 30 | 6pm-8pm
WHERE: CCCADI | 120 E. 125th Street New York, NY 10035
ADMISSION: $5 suggested donation.
