Creative and ambitious, possessing wisdom that reaches far beyond his years, Aaron McGruder has accomplished more before the age of 30 than many people do in a lifetime. McGruder is the creator of The Boondocks, a colorful, multi-layered comic strip that explores themes never before seen on the comics page. He voices his thoughts on the world around him through Huey and Riley, two African-American inner-city youths who move to the suburbs with their grandpa. Both boys have strong views and attitudes on black America s racial adversities as well as other relevant topics that face urban society today. Through his comics, McGruder has tackled such important topics as race relations, interracial marriage, bi-racial identity, and juvenile delinquency, in addition to political happenings and current events. The groundbreaking strip can currently be seen in more than 350 newspapers nationwide.
