Another Perspective On Cartoons

Vishavit Singh, a Sikh, calls himself the nation’s first turbaned editorial cartoonist. After 9/11, people referred to him as a “towelhead” and “Osama”, but he says the hate he experienced actually led him to making cartoons. He published his first book, “My Head Covering is Downright Sikh,” this year. This story comes from our partnership with Salon.com, where Vishavit wrote an essay.
