Event Description

Aaron McGruder discusses the tumultuous history of the Boondock's past and present.
The comic strip that was often too much for newspapers has become the show that's too much for cable television. From his 9/11 strips banned in New York to the BET episodes banned from air, McGruder discusses the politics, themes and characters that have so often landed him in hot water for a decade.
Fans of the show will have a rare opportunity to dialogue with Aaron about the creative process and the worldview that informs it, as well as get a sneak peek at McGruder's upcoming projects.
