This promotional flyer got a lot more traction via social media than the ad alone. I think that the description of the agenda and the facilitator’s bio helped to introduce the concept and add credibility to the event as a professional development session for educators and teachers.
This is so dope. I love the idea of using comics to foster creative and critical conversations about race and social justice. Comics are like a hybrid of memes and a book.
My daughter has really gotten into graphic novels as a genre, which is not something I was familiar with (and at first wrongly wrote off as “easy reading”) It is amazing what this opens up and how complex ideas are addressed in multiple ways and across frames. This flyer made me wonder about conversations with parents about how to use these texts to engage in “critical and creative conversations about race, identity and social justice” with their children.
