SummaryRupert Kinnard gives a talk on “Psychobabbleography: The Examination of an Absurdly Mentally and Physically Challenging Life,” with an introduction by MK Czerwiec. Part of the Comics and Medicine conference.
DescriptionRupert Kinnard created the first LGBTQ-identified African American comic strip characters in his groundbreaking series Cathartic Comics. His comics work—including his much anticipated memoir-in-progress LifeCapsule Project—spans all facets of his personal identity, from race, gender, and sexuality to classism, ageism, and disability. He received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the World Arts Foundation in 2013.

In keeping with this year’s theme of “access points,” the Library has partnered with the organizers to provide free public access to some conference programs on Friday and Saturday.
