SORT BY Relevancy
In the wake of Baltimore and Ferguson, we're going to be discussing the public policy that created the ghettos in America. What did the government do to contibute these situations? At what level of the government did they occur? Was there any legislative remedy to these issues, and were they adhered to? What affect did these issues have on African Americans then? What effect do they have on African Americans now? If there is a lasting legacy we are seeing today, what can we do to address it?
We'll try to cover as much as we can in our next broadcast. Please join us!

Graphic Policy is back with a brand new episode with special guest, and award winning journalist Spencer Ackerman.
Comics have often featured torture as a method for the heroes to extract information or get them to their goal. We most recently saw this in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, where torture is a key point in advancing the hero's plot. We'll discuss torture in comics, and its place in the modern stories and the world.
Spencer Ackerman is the U.S. national security editor of the Guardian, where he was part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism for the NSA surveillance revelations provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. A former senior writer for Wired, Ackerman won the 2012 National Magazine Award for Digital Reporting for his series about Islamophobia in FBI counterterrorism training. Having reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and numerous ships, bases and a submarine, Ackerman in 2015 exposed a secretive incommunicado police detention center in Chicago called Homan Square. A Brooklyn NY native, his mother taught him to read with Bill Mantlo's Incredible Hulk run.
We want to hear your thoughts on the topic. You can Tweet them to us at @graphicpolicy or call in live.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, and we're going to the movies again. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron has already proven itself to be one of the biggest films of the year. The film has already earned $1.2 billion globally. But popularity doesn't necessarily mean the film has been universally praised. The movie has come under fire for its portrayal of women, the absence of women in tie-in products, and for other issues with the story itself. Joining us for the conversation is Sarah Jaffe.
Sarah Jaffe is a reporting fellow at the Nation Institute and a giant nerd who once upon a time wrote about comics more than she wrote about politics, believe it or not, and she has lots of feelings about superhero movies AND their politics. Follow her on Twitter https://twitter.com/sarahljaffe
So listen in, and join us in the conversation. Call in with your thoughts, or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.

On this episode, we're discussing:
All-New X-Men made waves this past week when founding X-Man Bobby Drake aka Iceman was revealed to be gay. The writing though was controversial concerning statements around bisexuality. We talk about what happened, what we like vs what is still really troubling.
DC Comics revealed that Frank Miller will be penning Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Miller will be joined by Brian Azzarello on writing duties. We discuss the unfortunate name for the new series.
DC Comics' Convergence is wrapping up its first month this week. The two month event consists of a main series and a bunch of tie-in series. We discuss what we think so far. and what we hope to see in the second month.
We'll discuss all of that and more! We want to hear what you think too! Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy or call in to let us know what you think.
Our guest for this segment is Scott Morgan who specializes in U.S. policy towards Africa focusing on security and business development south of the Sahara. The strategic and economic importance of Africa is just being realized. This should be an interesting and educational interview which may change the way we think about a continent long ignored by the developed world.
