Asian war orphans, Hawaiian girls in coloring books, black children in comics: what Henry Darger’s art reveals about race in the United States

Join us for a talk with Jaimy Magdalena Mann, curator of Henry Darger’s Orphans and the Construction of Race. Mann will address the complicated aftermath of war, representations of race and ethnicity, Darger’s thwarted real-life attempts to adopt a child and his own victimization as an orphan.
