Breaking The Code: The Rise And Fall Of The Comics Code
Join Will Hansen of Duke University's Rubenstein Library, and a panel of local experts, for a discussion of the Comics Code Authority and the writers, artists and publishers who broke the code and created their own stories.

These restrictions led to a flourishing underground comic books market, widespread backlash from publishers and the development of modern comics and graphic novels. The panel will also include comics critic Rob Clough and John Stadler.

"Slavery by Another Name" Film Screening
The film chronicles the little-known story of a form of involuntary servitude that emerged after Reconstruction in the South and lasted for over 80 years. Southern states used convict labor to build roads and leased these workers to coalmines, timber camps, factories and farms. The states would round up laborers as needed, arrest them and lease them out to add to the state coffers. This "neo-slavery" or convict leasing existed until the 1940's. Discussion will follow. FREE.
