During his long and storied career, famed political cartoonist Bill Mauldin consistently questioned the privilege he witnessed in American politics, and used his artistry and wit to provide commentary on the world, earning two Pulitzer Prizes in the process. Addressing segregation in the armed forces, the 1960s civil rights movement, and the economic inequalities in America, Mauldin created images that communicated more than the written word often could. BILL MAULDIN: “IF IT’S BIG, HIT IT” delves into Bill’s incredible legacy, as well as his complicated personal life, to create an intimate portrait of a long-forgotten voice whose work still resonates today.
