Black History Month Speaker: Keith Knight

This event is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the National Society of Black Engineers. It is open to the public and counts as Mines Advantage credit to SD Mines students. Below is a brief bio on Keith:

Keith Knight is many things to many people–rapper, social activist, father and educator among them.  He’s also one of the funniest and most highly regarded cartoonists in America, and the creator of three
popular comic strips:the Knight Life, (th)ink, and the K Chronicles.For nearly two decades, this multi-award-winning artist has brought the funny back to the funny pages with a uniquely personal style that’s a cross between Calvin & Hobbes, MAD, and underground comix.Keith Knight is part of a  generation of  African-American artists who were raised on hip-hop, and infuse their work with urgency, edge, humor, satire, politics and race. His art has appeared in various publications worldwide, including  the Washington Post, Daily KOS, San Francisco Chronicle, Medium.com, Ebony, ESPN the MagazineL.A. WeeklyMAD Magazine, and  the Funny Times .His comic musings on race have garnered accolades and stirred controversies, prompting the NAACP to recognize him as a 2015 History Maker, and  CNN to tap him to grade America on its progress concerning issues of race.
