The Boondocks is a rich, multilayered comic strip that offers a frank yet often funny look at race in America. It starts with a simple premise: Two young boys, Riley and Huey, move from inner-city Chicago to live with their grandfather in the suburbs. The tension increases, however, because the two boys are African-Americans now compelled to adapt to a white suburban world. They must take all they’ve learned in the "hood" and apply it to life in the ’burbs. Superbly illustrated, The Boondocks has stirred controversy, attracted widespread media coverage, and won readers who’ve applauded McGruder’s unapologetic and humorous approach to race. In this second collection of Boondocks cartoons, readers can get another look at this innovative strip.
