Keith Knight is an award-winning San Francisco-based cartoonist and rapper. His two weekly comic strips, the K Chronicles (seen on Salon.com) and (th)ink (currently seen in the San Francisco Chronicle’s 96 Hours), offer an irreverent combination of race, politics, family and cutting-edge humor. His work has received praise from cartoonists Garry Trudeau (Doonesbury) and Aaron McGruder (the Boondocks), writers Adam Mansbach and Dave Eggers, among others.
Using his keen observation, insight, life experiences and cultural heritage, Knight will present a comic strip slideshow performance exploring health issues in the African American community. He will address these issues with wit, sensitivity, outrage and homage.
