Cartoonist Keith Knight Comes to Illinois Wesleyan

We know that there’s not much room in anyone’s minds right now for anything other than Homecoming, but please join us this Monday, October 8th at the Hansen Student Center (300 E Beecher St, Bloomington) from 7 PM – 8:30 PM for the rare opportunity to see cartoonist Keith Knight address the topic of racism in America. Says Prof. Dr. Peter Schneck of Osnabrück University, “Keith Knight’s slide show presentations are a poignant and stirring mixture of lecture, activist essay and stand-up comedy. Our students especially appreciated Keith’s entertaining and charismatic delivery that still never lost sight of the seriousness of his material. This show is a must-see for anyone trying to better understand race-relations, police brutality and the cultural climate for African Americans in the United States.”

For more about Keith and his role as a cartoonist provocateur, see this 2015 Washington Post article.

The event is free and open to the public, so please invite your friends!
