LSA's fall 2017 symposium, Marching Forward, reached across disciplines, generations, and communities to advance social justice scholarship. It explored historical injustices as well as the civil rights issues of today by sponsoring exhibits, plays, films, and talks, including a keynote discussion with the authors of the National Book Award-winning graphic memoir March: Congressman John Lewis, congressional aide Andrew Aydin, and cartoonist Nate Powell.
The symposium also hosted a social justice comics contest whose winners are gathered here.
Entries were judged on overall story, creativity, illustrations, and the way the comics treated social justice as a theme. You can read the winning entries from the three different age groups below.
