Jonathan Gray (Associate Professor of English at John Jay College-City University of New York) will examine the evolution of Black Panther's identity as a leader across the work of Don McGregor, Christopher Priest, Reginald Hudlin and Ta-Nehisi Coates, through consideration of the changing understanding of African nationhood based on shifting understandings of de-colonial, post-colonial and neo-liberal logics. This lecture is a co-presentation of the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film.
