Bohemians: A Graphic History
Monday, April 28, 6:30-8 PM
Elebash Recital Hall
Historian Paul Buhle, Sabrina Jones, Peter Kuper, and others speak about Bohemians, a graphic history of the transcontinental movement and its illustrious figures, recovering the utopian ideas behind millennarian communities, the rise of Greenwich Village and Harlem, the multiracial and radical jazz and dance worlds, and West Coast, Southern, and Midwest bohemias, among other scenes. Drawn by an all-star cast of comics artists, Bohemians is a broad and entertaining account of the rebel impulse in American cultural history.
