Civil Disobedience as Reflected in Comic Books (Why Luke Cage Can't Breathe)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Civil disobedience can be a powerful force for change. It can move civil rights and social justice movements forward, it can change governments, and it can often lead to violent clashes between authority and protestors. This panel will show how civil disobedience has been shown in comic books from the '60s and '70s versus how they are portrayed today with a special emphasis on how the government and heroes take sides.

I once killed a man to watch him die, unfortunately I got distracted and missed it, my friends tried to describe it but it wasn't the same............but enough about my problems
