#DidYouKnow cartoonist and activist Jackie Ormes is considered the first African American cartoonist in the United States. Ormes began working as a proofreader with the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the most prominent African American newspapers of the time. She eventually began creating comics for the newspaper. Her first called “Torchy Brown in Dixie to Harlem,” featured a black female character that defied stereotypes. Ormes’ most popular and influential strip was called “Patty Jo ‘n’ Ginger,” which ran for 11 years. These comics did not shy away from social and political themes, and the characters were portrayed as realistic and intelligent, serving as role models for the readers. In the late 1940s, “Patty Jo ‘n’ Ginger” also inspired the first African American baby doll toy based off a cartoon character. In addition to cartooning, Ormes was also a journalist. She was inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists Hall of Fame posthumously in 2012.
