A team led by African American Studies Professor Grace D.

The project is being run by Dr. Gipson and student staff members Sanaa Banks, Raiat Haque, and Asia Heath.
Gipson is a Black future feminist/pop culture scholar whose research and teaching interests explore Black popular culture, digital humanities, representations of race and gender within comic books, Afrofuturism, and race and new media.
