A film and discussion on politically incorrect, racist, sexist, homophobic, and
xenophobic cartoons in the United States before the 1980s. This is the first of
two programs looking at American cartoons that many of us have watched as kids

the early past.

Jackson is a La Jolla, CA native who, after a stint in the Air Force in the 1950s and a period in Los Angeles afterward, has never strayed from San Diego. He has mentored generations of jazz musicians in San Diego, including bassists Bob Magnusson and Mark Dresser, trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos, pianist Mike Wofford, saxophonist Charles McPherson, flutist Holly Hofmann, and pianist-singer A.J. Croce. In January 2010, San Diego City Councilwoman Donna Frye officially declared the week of January 24 to be Daniel Jackson Week, and Daniel’s creative accomplishments have been recognized by the California Arts Council, the City of San Diego, and the San Diego Music Awards.
