Racebending panel at C2E2

From our friends over at Racebending, we got word of a panel they are presenting at this weekend’s C2E2 (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo). If you’are at the convention, put this on your schedule:

Racebending is proud to announce that we will be hosting our first panel discussion in the midwest. Our discussion of representation in comics, Diverse Means for Diverse Worlds, will be presented at this year’s C2E2. The panel is focused on art and storytelling techniques in comics that allow fantasy worlds to mirror real world diversity. It is presented by an equally diverse roster of panelists whose own work and experience range from webcomics to running comics conventions. The panel presentation will be held on Sunday April 27th from 2:45-3:45 in panel room S402 at Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center.  Panelists include Gail Simone, Turtel Onli, Gene Ha, Jay Fuller, Ramon K. Perez, and Marjorie M. Liu with moderator Gabe Canada.

Can you pick a favorite scene of yours from this episode?
One of my favorite scenes, because I had many this episode, was the one in the kitchen with Shirley (Sola Bamis). That was fun – it felt like just a little peek into what we talk about, like [each of us] always being mistaken as the other one, and just making light of it, and you really get to see Dawn and Shirley both without having to have that filter of a smile.
On Twitter, I saw plenty of buzz for a Dawn-and-Shirley spin-off. Are you game?
Yes, I am all for that!

Flavorwire Interview: ‘Mad Men’s’ Teyonah Parris on Dawn’s Roller-Coaster Episode

FINALLY people are starting to appreciate the magic of Teyonah’s Dawn, and Shirley is looking like a more than promising character as well. I’m also just relieved they got Dawn out of those Kasper suits ensembles, hopefully Shirley’s penchant for mini-dresses rubs off on her.

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to a question posed by Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Security and Harvard University President

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

(via magnius159)

Okay but clarification: Larry Summers didn’t ask the question in the video, nor did he actually say “What’s up with chicks and science?” That was a tongue-in-cheek reference by the question-asker (calling his question the “Larry Summers Question”) to Summers’ suggestion that “innate” differences between men and women explained the disparity in numbers between men and women in math and science fields.
