The Birth of the American Political Cartoon, 1754 – 1776
Wednesday, September 26
This collection review will excavate the broadsides, engravings, political cartoons, caricatures, and propaganda that transformed early American politics. Canvasing the African Americana and Political Cartoon Collections, these materials offer a glimpse at a political culture that makes today’s exchanges appear positively demure by contrast.
