Pop Culture Classroom is the children’s educational arm of Denver Pop Culture Con. In these two stories I was honored to tell the stories of two of Denver’s spotlights on history’s main stage. First was ADAPT’s massive protests to push the Americans with Disabilities Act. Second is the story of Denver’s own Hattie McDaniel, the first woman of color to win an Academy Award. These are both collected in Denver Pop Culture Con’s volume one and two of Pop Culture Classroom graphic novels respectively.
