Activist To Present Slideshow At The U Of A Titled “They Shoot Black People Don’t They”
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – An independent cartoonist is set to perform his slideshow, “They Shoot Black People Don’t They: A Cartoonist’s Look at Police Brutality,” this month on the University of Arkansas campus.
Keith Knight’s performance in the Walton Reading Room of Mullins Library is scheduled for Feb. 20 and is free to the public. Knight also goes by the name “Keef,” according to his website, The K Chronicles.
Knight is being paid $4,000, plus travel and lodging expenses, in private funds from the library’s University Foundation account, according to a university spokesman.
He has two other appearances in February prior to his appearance in Fayetteville. The two earlier performances are in California.
On his website, Knight, a Massachusetts native, says he is presenting “They Shoot Black People, Don’t They: A Cartoonist’s Look At Police Brutality” for the first time “in the middle of the country.”
“This should get interesting!” he writes of his upcoming visit to Fayetteville.
