A lot has changed since 2014.
On June 23, 2014, the last episode The Boondocks aired on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Less than two months later…Ferguson happened.
The uprising that occurred in the Missouri city showed the outrage people felt after another unarmed Black person, Michael Brown, was killed by the police. This time, however, people were getting organized around the country and the weeks that followed were filled with heated online debates, news coverage and a new awareness police brutality and Black oppression.
Since then, a plethora movements have followed suit pertaining to women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and more. Tensions probably hit a national peak in 2016 when Donald Trump was elected President the United States.
Could Aaron McGruder, the creator The Boondocks, have predicted all this?
