Over Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, Warner Bros. Television Group, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment teamed up for “DC in D.C.”, a landmark pop culture event that joined the worlds of entertainment and public service to illuminate the story of America and current issues through the lens of comics and Super Heroes. The event provided the opportunity for the public to explore the intersection of DC comic books, culture, entertainment and enlightenment through a series of panel discussions.
At the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, “DC in D.C.” premiered the upcoming television series Black Lighting, based on DC’s first stand-alone African-American Super Hero. The event also featured discussions on The Aftermath: Battle & Trauma in Comics, The Pride of DC: The Art of LGBTQ Inclusion, The Many Shades of Heroism: DC Heroes Through the African-American Lens, and more.
