PANEL: The Most Racist Panel Ever DATE: Sunday, August 23, 2015 TIME: 1:00-1:45pm LOCATION: Room 14
Got your attention now?! So much has changed in our pop culture world – however, there are still many obstacles when it comes to experiencing ethnic or other marginalized heroes in media. Join us for this challenging topic as multicultural nerds discuss the cultural barriers, systemic problems, and the artistic gaps, that keep us from seeing diverse representation in comics, TV, and film. Panel organized and moderated by Tony Kim (“Crazy 4 Comic Con” on Con Radio”).
