Humor and Hate: How Two Political Cartoonists Draw a Violent World

November 16, 2016, 7:00 PM

Free

Oak Fellow Khalid Albaih and Bangor Daily News cartoonist George Danby have thought a lot about how to respond to violence, including the actual shooting of artists like themselves, or really bad jokes about killing artists like themselves.

In 2015 Albaih was horrified by the murder of cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo, even though he, a Muslim, had criticized the Islamophobic work occasionally produced at the French magazine. And later that same year, Danby was startled to learn that Maine Gov. Paul LePage had told an audience of high school students, including Danby‘s son, that he would “like to shoot” the cartoonist for the Bangor Daily News. Come hear (and see) these two cartoonists talk about (and draw) humor in a hate-filled world.
