About

‘Black & White’ is an attempt to use cartoons in the campaigns for human rights. Today, writers, artists, activists and human rights defenders are being targeted for their peaceful activism across the globe. We are getting used to with the news of years long unlawful detentions and many other unjustified, inhuman sentences like flogging and beheading. Due to government induced censorship and control over media, sometimes the world remains totally unaware of these human rights violations and the victims get no support from anywhere.

But since last few years, online activism has given us a ray of hope. Many organizations and activist have succeeded to organize powerful international campaigns in their support and in many fortunate cases; they’ve been successful to achieve the goal.

‘Black & White’ is an effort to contribute in these campaigns through the art of cartooning, which is getting mightier with the time. The recent attacks on the cartoonists have added even more power to this stream of art. B&W supports persecuted HRDs, journalists, artists and others through cartoons by creating awareness among masses and by mobilizing social media users in their support.
