Saturdays at the Stanley: May Day, Workers of the World Unite!


Ho Che Anderson’s three-volume graphic novel, King, mixes the historical record with imagined conversations and events during Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life in the 1950s and ‘60s. Pages from King with the artist’s and editor’s annotations are part of the Stanley School Programs Collection that has visited K–12 schools across Iowa.

Associate Curator of Education Joshua Siefken will present Anderson’s work and discuss the social justice themes present in the Stanley School Programs Graphic Novels & Comics Collection.
