    Sun., June 9 - 12pm-1:50pm - Rm W522
    Political Cartooning:
    Cartooning is a highly effective tool for conveying complex ideas in a widely disseminated format. Avant-garde leftist cartoonists like Peter Kuper (“World War 3 Illustrated”), Ted Rall (“Search and Destroy”), and Stephanie McMillan (“Minimum Security”), utilize the cartoon form to spread propaganda designed to shift the discussion, helping the struggle to save the Earth from ecocidal capitalism. If words won’t be enough to save what’s left of the environment—-try cartoons.

    Slide Talk and Book Release Celebration

    15 Rutherford Place at 15th St between 2nd and 3rd Aves.

    New York NY 10003

    How did the US become the world leader in locking its people up?

    How are comics part of the solution?

    Race to Incarcerate, A Graphic Retelling tackles these questions with the vivid artwork of graphic novelist and15th Street member Sabrina Jones and the expertise of Marc Mauer, director of the Sentencing Project.

    A thoroughly researched analysis of the “war on drugs” and “tough on crime” policies adapted in the form of a graphic novel, Race to Incarcerate may be particularly useful to Friends concerned with prison issues and racial justice.

    Come see, hear and discuss how we can engage in this urgent issue.

    Books will be available.

    Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, states in the introduction:

    “Do not underestimate the power of the book you are holding in your hands.”
