Whether it be in the classroom or in the home, it can be difficult to open conversations about politics, race, religion, misogyny, and bigotry. This panel will explore comic/graphic novel titles that work to open up those conversations as well as hopefully spark some political/social activism among those affected. We will also explore activism options that could be/have been incepted from these reads.
