Exhibit: Changing Image of Blacks in Comics - Extended
The Cousins Gallery will host a traveling educational exhibit that includes an extensive collection of comic books, comic strips, action figures, buttons, statues, trading cards, posters, and original art, curated by Comic Book Professor William H. Foster III.
A long-time comic book collector and researcher, Professor Foster has been an expert commentator for both CNN News and National Public Radio. He was a consultant on the historical image of Blacks in both comic strips and comic books for the Words and Pictures Museum of Fine Sequential Art in Northampton, MA, and also a consultant to the 2004 exhibit “Heroes, Heartthrobs, and Horrors: Celebrating Connecticut’s Invention of the American Comic Book” presented by the Connecticut Historical Society. His exhibit on the “Changing Image of Blacks in Comics” has been displayed at a number of venues across the country, including Temple University’s Paley Library, the 1998 Comic-Con International Comic Arts Conference, the 2000 Festival of Arts and Ideas, and in 2012 for the Texas Visual Arts Association in Dallas.
