How can a graphic novel help us think about our world? What can graphic novels tell us about ourselves? Can graphic novels help us imagine new possibilities for our world? Join us on Thursdays in February for a discussion of multiculturalism, diversity and social justice in Ta-Nehisi Coates graphic novel, Black Panther: A Nation Under our Feet Book 1. Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics: An Invisible Art will also be used as an aid throughout the series.

Spotlight CineFest Featured Movie: Loving
February 15-17, 2017
1 p.m., 3:10 p.m., 5:20 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.
