Superheroes: The Colors of Justice – Diversity in Comics

Take an in-depth look at how diversity in comics has evolved over the years as the University of Michigan Detroit Center welcomes you to experience “Superheroes: The Colors of Justice – Diversity in Comics.”

Beginning February 26 - March 20, engage yourself in a sprawling exhibition of over 125 comics and action figures in the Monts Hall Gallery, culminating with a March 11 Comic Jam (invitation-only for Detroit Public School students) and March 12 symposium on the exhibition.

With a 21st century perspective, today’s artists and writers now incorporate social and cultural issues to tell inspiring stories. No longer one-sided comic book characters, today’s heroes comes from all walks of life. With this modern approach, diversity in comics and superheroes may resonate in mainstream pop culture for decades to come.


The March 12 Symposium is open to the public and runs from 9am-3pm. This event includes complimentary admission, parking, lunch and light refreshments. Please RSVP to ensure your seat for this unique seminar.

All activities occur at the University of Michigan Detroit Center, 3663 Woodward Ave., Suite 150 Detroit, Michigan, 48201. For more information, contact the Detroit Center: (313) 593-3584 or detroitcenter@umich.edu
