Originally posted Sept. 20, 2010
Ron Rogers, believed to be the only black editorial cartoonist on staff with an American newspaper, recently lost his job with the South Bend (Indiana) Tribune. As a teenager, Rogers dreamed of being the nation's first black editorial cartoonist. His dream became a reality in Aug. 2005 when he hired on with the Tribune. His last cartoon was published in the Sept. 3, 2010, issue of the paper. Look for the full story at the website of Editor and Publisherhere.

Note: Ron Rogers is now working as a freelance editorial cartoonist. You can see his cartoons at the website of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC), here.
