Thomas Stockett Holiday Drawings

As a 2017 AFRO article noted, Thomas Stockett served as the AFRO’s editorial cartoonist from 1955 until his death in 2007. Throughout that time, he was the visual voice of the paper, illustrating its editorial point of view to help readers envision numerous topics from a Black perspective.

His illustrations provide historical relevance to African American Studies, African Diaspora Studies, and media studies, as well as those interested in the study of American political cartoons, and as a resource for state and local historians. Read more on about Mr. Stockett here.
