Jennifer Dasal is on a mission. The associate curator of contemporary art at the North Carolina Museum of Art is dedicated to bringing Latino graphic art and illustrations out into the mainstream. "There's a lack of diversity and so few Latino illustrators and art in books," she says. "It's still a homogenous field -- but still, Latino people are creating characters as works of art."

I was troubled by the extensive air time Obama was given to the exclusion of other world leaders at the Memorial event in Johannesburg. Perhaps that's why the UN General Assembly organized its own special tribute to Mandela so that every country could equally be heard.
