Cartoonist Illustrates What It’s Like Being The Only Black Man In A White Office In The 1960s


Tom Floyd operated his own advertising firm in the 1960s. He used his personal experience as the only black man working in a white environment in the 60s, showcasing the absurd reality he was forced to be a part of.

The cartoonist was a proponent of meaningful racial understanding and cooperation. His comic series ‘Integration is a Bitch‘ was released in 1969, a time where the vast majority of works like it were rejected by publishers, too scared to deal with such a sensitive subject. Luckily, Floyd’s work managed to squeeze its way into the pressing machine, and people say it’s relevant even today.
