After I attended the Freedom Train festivities in Yerba Buena Park, I went to the Metreon to attend the Black Comix Art Festival. African American cartoonists gathered to sell their comic books and talk about their work. The previous day, my brother, niece and I went to the San Francisco Public Library to see cartoonist David Brown and listen to some conversations of black cartoonists. I enjoyed being a fly in the wall listening to these cartoonist talk about black issues that I had little knowledge of. The only time I spoke, I mentioned how Asian Americans and other minorities have benefitted from the opportunities that African Americans opened up during the civil rights movement.
Here are photos of the cartoonists who attended the festival.
