Black Super Heroes have been advocated for, created, and published by Prof. Onli since the 1970s.  The first being "NOG: The Protector of the Universe". The Nubian of Greatness!". Which he created while living and working in Paris France.  NOG is the most powerful Black Super Hero ever created.

Brilliantly he coined the term, "The Black Age of Comics" to celebrate creators and concepts derived from the Black, African, Urban and Indie experience.

"Chicago does much more than lead the nation in urban shooting! Being in my vintage phase I teach at the Harold Washington College in Chicago. It is named after our late African American reformer Mayor, The honorable Harold Washington.  We are home to real legacies and movements in creativity, culture & commerce!

Mayor Washington laid the foundation and pathway to the rise of President Obama.  This is the Chicago way.  Just as the Rhythmisitc visual Art Movement along with the launch of the Black Age of Comics laid the template for current trends in the arts that bring diversity to the forefront.

My students come from everywhere to learn to be better.  Art is a healing and expressive agent.  The Ism-Schims prevail to undermine so much. Classism, Sexism, Racism and of course Agism.

By the way.....we are winning!  So will you!!"
