Graphic Artists to Discuss Award-Winning ‘Kindred’
Wednesday, February 10, 2021


Damian Duffy is a No. 1 New York Times bestselling graphic novelist who teaches courses on computer and culture, and social media and global change.

John Jennings is co-founder of the Black Comic Book Festival in Harlem, the MLK NorCal’s Black Comix Arts Festival in San Francisco and SOL-CON: The Brown and Black Comix Expo at Ohio State University. A Nasir Jones Hip Hop Studies Fellow at Harvard University, he is currently working on an adventure comic titled “Kid Code: Channel Zero,” the supernatural crime noir story “Blue Hand Mojo.”

Both came together to create a 2018 graphic novel adaptation of Octavia E. Butler’s “Kindred.” And both will come together to talk about their craft tonight in a livestream program hosted by The Community Library.

The two will field questions from Martha Williams, the Library’s programs and education manager, and the library’s Winter Read high school interns at 6 p.m. tonight—Wednesday, Feb. 10.

“Kindred: A graphic novel adaptation” won the 2017 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Graphic Novel. It also won the 2018 Eisner Comics Award for Best Adaptation from Another Medium.”

“Kindred,” published more than 35 years ago, follows a young Black woman who time travels between the 1970s and the antebellum South where her life as a free woman is challenged by the lives of those entangled in the life of a conflicted white slaveholder.
