An Electrifying Black Lightning Conversation on Good vs. Evil

Feb 11, 2019
6:30 PM ET
New York

The CW’s critically acclaimed Black Lightning understands that a superhero’s story is only as good as its villain—and with the cold, ruthless, calculating Tobias Whale in the mix, this smart, relevant series has achieved must-watch status. Join Cress Williams, who stars as the superhero Black Lightning, and Marvin Jones III, who portrays the complicated villain Tobias Whale, for a discussion of the show and their characters, heroism and villainy, good vs. evil—and the very thin line that can separate the two.

This event is part of the Paley Center’s multifaceted Black History Month celebration, Shaping Our Nation’s Story: African-American Achievements in Television Presented by Citi.
