Left of Black | Keith Knight on Hulu's New Series: WOKE
Does being a Black artist necessitate being 'woke' and thus influencing the work that they produce? Cartoonist Keith Knight has attained newfound success with the new Hulu original series, "Woke," starring rising star Lamorne Morris as Keef, an artist whose confrontation with the police causes him to question the comic strips he's been creating. Somewhat autobiographical, the series adds humor while still tackling the systemic racism that is inherent in African-American life. Mr. Knight joined Prof. Mark Anthony Neal to discuss the show and how life has changed for him as an artist.
