As part of the programming for the exhibition “From MLK to March: Civil Rights in Comics and Cartoons,” the March team – Rep. John Lewis, writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell – came to Pittsburgh to tell their story on October 8, 2016. The visit was the result of a collaborative effort between the ToonSeum and Sweetwater Center for the Arts with support from The Pittsburgh Foundation and Carlow University. To honor the legacy of Rep. Lewis, the ToonSeum would like to share two remembrances from that day by ToonSeum president Marcel Walker and curator Sylvia Rhor.
*During the COVID-19 health crisis, the ToonSeum has currently suspended its in-person programming in keeping with best practices adopted by numerous other organizations nationwide. We will be sure to post updates as we create new program content and update existing content, so that we may continue to engage with our loyal audiences.
