Please join Al-Awda PRRC for this special evening featuring Mohammad Sabaaneh, top Palestinian cartoonist, former political prisoner, and the author of “White And Black: Political Cartoons from Palestine.”
His book will be available for sale at event and includes book signing.
Sabaaneh is the principal political cartoonist for the Palestinian Authority’s daily newspaper, Al-Hayat al-Jadida. As a young and popular artist living in the West Bank, he has been imprisoned by Israel and censured by the Palestinian Authority.
Mohammad Sabaaneh, a talented political cartoonist from Palestine, has gained worldwide renown for his stark black-and-white sketches, which draw attention to brutalities of the Israeli occupation and celebrate the Palestinians’ popular resistance. These provocative drawings do not flinch from tackling the tough subjects that confront Palestinians, from Israel’s everyday injustices in the West Bank to their frequent military operations on Gaza. This collection includes 180 of Sabaaneh’s best cartoons, some of them depicting the experience of Palestinian political prisoners being held in Israel.
