Dark Laughter: Satiric Art of Oliver W. Harrington

by Oliver W. Harrington

Editorial Reviews

Born in 1912, Harrington was a prolific contributor of humorous and editorial cartoons to the black press in the 1930s and 1940s, achieving fame for his creation of a cartoon panel called Dark Laughter, a satire of Harlem society. He was targeted during the McCarthy era, self-exiled to Paris in 1951, and trapped behind the Berlin Wall in 1961, where he decided to stay and continue his career. This selection of his work brings Harrington to well-deserved attention in America. See Why I Left America (N6537). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
