About

‘Black & White’ is a small attempt to use cartoons in the campaigns for human rights. Today, writers, artists, activists and human rights defenders are being targeted for their works and creations 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 more power to this stream of art. B&W publishes and circulates the series of the cartoons supporting HRDs, writers, artists and others facing injustice in their part of the world, tries its best to create awareness among masses and to mobilize social media users for the campaigns demanding the end of the injustice. You can support Black & White by sharing the cartoons on your social media accounts. You can also tell us about the cases, you think we should support through cartoons.
