Middle and highschool students get together weekly and work on story boards, images, drawings and designs and will print their own comic book.

Lead Artist Maritza Mosquera with rap hip-hop poet Luqmon Abdul Salaam and cartoonist Kristoffer Smith work together on hands on and conceptual workshops. The August Wilson Center for African American Culture and Artists Image Resource are two collaborating partners with lead partner The American Jewish Museum of Pittsburgh. Whew!
