The MISTI-Con Keynote Luncheon
J.K. Rowling explained away racism in the Wizarding World, saying that “there was mutual respect and a sense of kinship between all wizards, no matter what their race.” In this keynote, we will discuss the problem with this statement and the ways in which race and racism show up not only in the Wizarding World but in the fandom as a whole. How does the intersectionality between race and other identities shape people in the fandom and characters in the series?
Featuring a Panel of Bayana Davis (Black Girls Create), Constance Gibbs (Black Girls Create), Lawerence Neals (Entertainer), Lorrie Kim (Author) and moderated by Robyn Jordan (Black Girls Create)
