Four Color Culture: Comic Books and American History, 1938-2014
Start Date: 3/1/2014 All Day
End Date: 4/12/2014

Event Description

Four Color Culture seeks to illuminate not only the history of mainstream American comic books, but also the ways in which comics have taken an active part in the political, social, and cultural life of the United States for the past seventy-six years. From World War II, Korea, and Vietnam to racism, the Civil Rights Movement, and the campaigns for LGBT equality, to 9/11 and beyond, comics have always taken part in the national debate. Questioning, educating, challenging, and agitating, American comic books have never been “just kids’ stuff.” Four Color Culture reveals comics’ ability to help shape American history yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

A reception will be held on March 20, 2014 from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Reece Museum.
