Vintage Black Comic Strips

The Chisholm Kid exhibition features panels from the trailblazing color comic strip of the same name that ran in the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the nation’s pre-eminent African American newspapers. The Chisholm kid is both historically and culturally significant due to the strip’s hero, being represented as a positive force for good at a time when so man images of African Americans in all forms of popular culture reflected negative stereotypes.
