All For One & One For All: Black Comic Strips & The Rule of Two

As I was doing research for my next Cartoon Crimmicismm entries, I came across some fascinating information about an interesting job action to take place on February 10 this year. A number of syndicated black cartoonists are participating in a stunt that will “protest” the perception that black comic strips are interchangeable and thus are forced to compete with each other for token space in comic sections.

This article in the St. Pete Times (Florida) explains the motivation and concept behind the action. I emailed Darrin Bell, one of the organizers and participants, to find out if I can participate as well, wish me luck!
