Cartoonist Keith Knight gives free presentation tonight at Pittsburgh's Point Park University

Posted By on Mon, Apr 4, 2016 at 1:10 PM

If the weekend's run of comics events wasn't enough for you, there's another one tonight, and it looks like a good one.

Keith Knight, a veteran, nationally syndicated cartoonist known for his provocative takes on race and other issues, speaks at Point Park University.

Knight, who's based in San Francisco, is the creator of strips including "Knight Life," "K Chronicles" and "(th)ink." It's funny stuff, with Knight weaving more personal stories in with commentary on issues ranging from everyday racism to police violence against unarmed civilians. Point Park is promoting the free talk, puckishly titled "Red, White, Black and Blue," as "an evening of race, media, politics and satire." 

A sampling of Knight's work is currently at Pittsburgh's ToonSeum through May 1.

The talk is at 7 p.m., in the GRW Theater of Point Park University Center, 414 Wood St., Downtown. Knight's presentation will be followed by a discussion with Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers and P-G columnist (and noted comics afficionado) Tony Norman. An audience Q&A follows.

Here's more info.
