Video: Liza Donnelly at Inspire Fest 2019

New Yorker and CBS News cartoonist Liza Donnelly talks about how cartoons "disrupt" in this presentation from InspireFest. She cites Ben Franklin's "Join or Die" image, and rightly calls him America's first editorial cartoonist. Lou Rogers, an early 20th century female cartoonist, also used her images to move the country toward women's suffrage. Take a look at the video. Some inspiring words.

"Cartoons tell us about our world .... [Cartoons] tell us about who we are, what we're doing and what we might be doing wrong."
