Contributions are invited for a collection of original essays that explore race and blackness in American comic books, comic strips, and editorial cartoons from the turn of the twentieth century through the industry’s Golden Age in the 1940s and 1950s. The historical perception of black people in comic art has long been tied to caricatured images of indecipherable minstrels, witch doctors, and brutal savages, yet archives reveal a more racially complex narrative and aesthetic landscape, one that was enriched by the debates among comics artists, writers, editors, and readers about how blackness could be expressed on the page.

Our age is one of refugee crises, of wars where the civilian population is more exposed than ever before, and of terrorist attacks that can produce more victims than organized combat. Today, information about all of these events circulates faster than ever, particularly outside of traditional media outlets.  Witnessing and reporting about destruction has never been easier, and cultural memory and social responsibility are more mobile and more complicated as a consequence.
