OLLI-UA Online Speaker Series
A Cartoonist's Perspective in 2021 with David Fitzsimmons

Back and updated for 2021, complete with David's own COVID-19 cartoons. Topics include: Why and how freedom of speech ensures the survival of democracy, a history of social protest art with an emphasis on how political cartooning came to emerge as an art form, the endangered state of political cartooning today, my philosophy: how humor helps individuals, communities, nations, and political theories to endure, today’s struggle: The global survival of journalism in an age of ever-growing censorship.

Dave Fitzsimmons, is the Cartoonist, and Columnist, for The Arizona Daily Star, where he began drawing cartoons back when Geronimo was just a paperboy. Right around 1986. A Pulitzer Finalist, Fitz’ cartoons are syndicated to over 800 news publications around the world. The Arizona Press Club voted him the best columnist in the state. What do they know. No one in the news or in his audience is safe when his pen is uncapped. Described as a “Flaming moderate at the fringe of America’s center”, Fitz is a snappy dresser who loves reading hate mail from readers and making his kids laugh.
