Pioneering Cartoonists of Color with Walter Carr and Ray Billingsley via Zoom
Friday, June 18 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Join veteran illustrators, Walter Carr and Ray Billingsley, as they discuss black perspective—Carr as a political cartoonist and Billingsley in his syndicated comic strip “Curtis.” Both men use drawing to share and illuminate black experience, using humor to educate, inspire, and inform their readers. Discovered on the streets of Harlem, NY, Ray Billingsley was a youngster when he was introduced into a decade’s long career as a Black cartoonist. He literally grew up in the industry, facing the same sort of hurdles that others faced years earlier. The award-winning CURTIS, syndicated by King Features Syndicate, made its debut in 1988 and has inspired a new generation of artists of color to explore their own visions in the art field.
