Liza Donnelly Remembers Kofi Annan’s Love of Comics

Writing on Medium.com cartoonist Liza Donnelly recalls the opening remarks United Nations’ Secretary General Kofi Annan gave during a 2005 event called “Unlearning Intolerance.”

From the story:

“I have always thought that cartoons are one of the most important elements in the press. They have a special role in forming public opinion?—?because an image generally has a stronger, more direct impact on the brain than a sentence does, and because many more people will look at a cartoon than read an article.

If you are flicking through a newspaper you have to make a conscious decision to stop and read an article, but it is hardly possible to stop yourself from looking at a cartoon.”
