Race and Ethnicity

For our November 17 session I passed out copies of Harryette Mullen's poem "Denigration" (read it here and comics by South African comics artist, Joe Dog. (Read about Joe Dog and Bitterkomix, which he co-edits, here and here.

I'm happy to report that Studio Museum Harlem is currently showing an exhibition of original comics artwork from Africa--much of which is highly politicized--including work by Joe Dog. See this for more info and plan to make a visit if you can.

Your assignment is to write a poem or other piece having ethnicity/race and language as a central concern.
