Join us for a live conversation with Keith Knight, cartoonist & musician. His story is the subject of the tv show Woke, available on Hulu! We'll discuss his life, career, & art work.

Keith Knight is many things to many people–rapper, social activist, father and educator among them.  He’s also one of the funniest and most highly regarded cartoonists in America, and the creator of three
popular comic strips: the Knight Life, (th)ink, and the K Chronicles.

For nearly two decades, this multi-award-winning artist has brought the funny back to the funny pages with a uniquely personal style that’s a cross between Calvin & Hobbes, MAD, and underground comix.

Keith Knight is part of a  generation of  African-American artists who were raised on hip-hop, and infuse their work with urgency, edge, humor, satire, politics and race. His art has appeared in various publications worldwide, including  the Washington Post, Daily KOS, San Francisco Chronicle, Medium.com, Ebony, ESPN the MagazineL.A. WeeklyMAD Magazine, and  the Funny Times .

His comic musings on race have garnered accolades and stirred controversies, prompting the NAACP to recognize him as a 2015 History Maker and  CNN to tap him to grade America on its progress concerning issues of race.
