On this special edition of Independent Sources hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we explore how the sector’s increasing influence is leading to a call for greater racial and gender diversity in the pages of comics as well as amongst the people who make them. We feature interviews with Marvel editor, Sana Amanat, the co-creator of the popular Muslim American super heroine, “Ms. Marvel” and the inker/artist Dexter Vines, who has worked on Superman titles for DC and X-Men for Marvel. We also profile a Surinamese immigrant who wants to start her own custom costume company for curvy women.
Independent Sources is where viewers meet the ethnic press.

Each show features an in-depth profile of a news organization or a reporter, along with a news roundup. Independent Sources IS an informative, innovative half hour about New York's fastest growing news sector.
