BLACKS IN COMICS: LOOKING FOR A FACE LIKE MINE. Professor William H. Foster, 3rd is a Comic Historian.  N'Zinga Shäni had a discussion with him about his wonderful book, published 10 years ago titled: "Looking for a Face Like Mine." for centuries when blacks did appear in comic books the representation was less than positive.  In his book, he showed other depictions and interpreted some of the older depictions for us.  The full 1-hr program shows Storm (a female heroine), the Black Panther and other black super heroes.  It's a fabulous book to be discussed with children.  DVD copies of the full program available from OneWorld.  Visit us on Face Book  here: http://goo.gl/8v19VB  If you like what you see, please “LIKE” our FB page and please SHARE us with others.
