W.E.B. DuBois Community Day: Empowering through Panels opening

August 14 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sunday, August 14
1 pm – 4 pm


Empowering Through Panels is an exhibition that explores the power of imagination, creativity, and brotherhood. Displaying the brilliance of their creative minds, groups of students teamed up together to create their own original pitch comic stories and illustrations. A pitch comic is a proposal for a full comic book that includes a synopsis and sample artwork. Please register for free, this is so we may keep a head count for the event.
