Biographical and Professional Information
Tim Jackson is a nationally syndicated cartoonist and illustrator. He has illustrated editorial cartoons for the Chicago Defender, Chicago Tribune, and Cincinnati Herald, among others. His book, Pioneering Cartoonists of Color, offers an unprecedented look at the rich yet largely untold story of African American cartoon artists. It provides a historical record of the men and women who created seventy-plus comic strips, many editorial cartoons, and illustrations for articles. The volume covers the mid-1880s, the early years of the self-proclaimed black press, to 1968, when African American cartoon artists were accepted in the so-called mainstream.
