Black Nerd Problems: Depictions of African Americans in Popular Media 

When: Wed., March 15 2017
From the recent success of Luke Cage to the controversy surrounding nontraditional casting in the upcoming Spiderman film, tonight's program at the Maltz Museum, dubbed Black Nerd Problems: Depictions of African Americans in Popular Media, addresses how African Americans have "fit, been positioned or sometimes snuck into" the media we digest and how they factor into entertainment. William Evans, the co-creator and editor-in-chief of Black Nerd Problems (blacknerdproblems.com), leads the discussion. The talk begins at 7. Tickets are $12, $6 for Maltz Museum members.
