This cartoon picture, is a black and white drawing that deals with the position of Afro-Americans in the society of the United States. It is published on caglecartoons.com.
In this picture we can see a big man standing on a podium and where we can clearly see the word ' HISTORY' written in capital letters. The man is wearing a dark suit,in which the initials MLK is seen and in his left hand he is holding a booklet entitled “I Have A Dream“ from 28 August 1963.( MLK's speech!)
The big man stretches out his right hand in the direction of another coloured man who tries to reach the top of the podium. He also wears a suit and stretches out his right hand . This man is smaller and thinner than the already standing on the podium.
The two men present in the cartoon are : the big man is Martin Luther King and the small man represents the president of the united states Barak Obama.
The cartoon shows that even after the great speech of MLK, the black population in the USA, have not gained equality. Though now, USA has its first black president , MLK's dream has not been fully fulfilled. The inequality still exists!
