The Most Racist Panel Ever at Wizard World Chicago

August 23, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

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”).

Panelists include:
Tanya DePass (#INeedDiverseGames)
Shareef Jackson (writer and podcast/YouTube host)
Dawn Xiana Moon (Raks Geek)
Jeff Smith (co-founder and former president of Chicago Nerd Social Club)
