The Libraries of Marin Presents
Marin Comics Fest: Keith Knight
Wednesday, September 23 at 6pm
Launched in 2017 with the support of Marin County libraries, the Marin Comics Fest celebrates the diverse narrative power of comics art and the illustrators and authors who help create it.
Keith Knight is a rapper, social activist, father, and educator. As a multi-award-winning artist, he 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. 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. The NAACP recognized him as a 2015 History Maker. Woke, a show based on Keith, debuted on Hulu on September 9th. He's the creator of three popular comic strips: The Knight Life, (th)ink, and The K Chronicles.
