In 1966, Black Panther, the first black superhero appeared in the Marvel Comic Books. Virtually no black heroes were created before him, and none with actual superpowers. During this exhibition, we pay homage to the black comic book characters of the past 50 years.

The Black Panther: Celebrating 50+ Years of Black Superheroes features book covers, paintings, prints and animation by a variety of artists including Annie Burley, Ketura Bobo, Gabby Metzler, Raeghan Barron, Victor Dandridge, Sophie Harpo, Kaycee Nwakudu, Alissa Sallah, Ronald Wimberly, Okelle Lee and others. The exhibit is co-curated by Bryan Moss and Lyn Logan-Grimes, The King Arts Complex Cultural Arts Director.
