Movie Discussion with Dr. Curtis Sartor and the Black Student Union: “Drawn Together: Comics, Diversity and Stereotypes.” With a lively backdrop of superheroes, comic books, and animated comics, “Drawn Together: Comics, Diversity and Stereotypes” brings together three talented artists—a Sikh, a woman, and an African American—who are challenging the racist stereotyping currently endemic in America through their work. The documentary provides the rare opportunity to explore the subjects of race, gender, and religion stereotyping through the universally popular medium of comic books and cartoons. Drawn Together boldly encourages viewers to unlearn stereotyping, look beyond the obvious, and confront media prejudices—all through an uncommon and inherently engaging everyday source.

Dr. Curtis Sartor, Associate Vice President for Diversity and Spiritual Development, talked with Ian Simpkins, a Judson alumnus and member of Judson’s External Diversity Committee, during Simkin’s “Common Good” AM 1160 radio show. Listen to this clip to learn more about Judson’s work on diversity.
In January, Dr. Sartor received the City of Elgin’s Humanitarian Award for his work on diversity issues professionally and personally. The award was given during the City of Elgin’s Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Prayer Breakfast. See the power and purpose of this community gathering in a video created by the MLK Committee.
