Join Vocalo's Brian Babylon and director Ken Wyatt to watch Ken's "Colored Confederates: Myth or Matter of Fact?" as well as "White Scripts and Black Supermen," which revisits the comic books of Jonathan Gayles' boyhood with a critical eye to the superheroes that were shaped by racial stereotypes. 

A part of Gene Siskel Film Center's 18th Annual Black Harvest Film Festival, enjoy the films and then join in a lively post discussion. The Film Center demonstrates "The commitment, imagination, and creativity of independent directors from throughout the U.S. and the world bring stories and images of the black experience to life. As always, filmmakers from the Chicago area are especially front and center in our festival, and filmmaker appearances abound."
