In a free, public lecture, William Villalongo, assistant professor in the School of Art, and Mark Thomas Gibson will discuss Black Pulp!, a traveling exhibition they co-curated that examines the evolving perspectives of Black identity in American culture and history from 1912 to 1990 through rare historical printed media and contemporary art.

The exhibition includes works by artists, graphic designers, and publishers in formats ranging from little known comic books to covers for historic books and magazines, to etchings, digital prints, drawings, and media-based works by some of today’s leading artists.
