Red, White, Black and Blue: An Evening With Cartoonist Keith Knight

ToonSeum and Point Park University in Pittsburgh will present an evening of race, media, politics and satire.

Keith Knight, creator of the Knight Life, K Chronicles and (th)ink), will share cartoons culled from over 20 years of his award-winning nationally-syndicated work. 

Presenting his unique take on the militarization of the nation’s police force, and the unchecked killing of unarmed citizens, Knight’s cartoons are infused with urgency, humor, satire, politics, and race.

His work is designed to provoke constructive, civil dialogue among people young and old, left and right, of all colors and orientations. 

The presentation has been a hit at university campuses everywhere.

Following the presentation, Keith will be joined on stage by editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers and columnist Tony Norman, both from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, to discuss the topic further. 

An audience Q&A will follow.

Keith Knight's artwork will be on display at the ToonSeum through May 1st. For more information go to:
