SDCC18: Don’t Miss These CBLDF Signings!

Jackie Ormes: The First African American Woman Cartoonist Book Jacket
Stop by CBLDF Booth #1918 during San Diego Comic-Con to get these groundbreaking graphic novels signed by some of the talented people that brought the work to life.

Friday, July 20 – 12 pm

Stop by CBLDF Booth Friday at noon to meet Nancy Goldstein the author of Jackie Ormes: The First African-American Woman Cartoonist.
From Donna Seaman’s starred Booklist review:

In the first book devoted to Ormes, Goldstein not only recounts with enthusiasm the trailblazing cartoonist’s remarkable story from her birth in Pittsburgh to her celebrity-filled life in Chicago but also keenly analyzes Ormes’ influential cartoons and the role black newspapers played in the struggle for racial equality. With a generous selection of Ormes’ “forward-looking” cartoons resurrected for the first time, this is one exciting and significant book. Viva Jackie Ormes.
