Write It! - Day 21 | Jackie Ormes

Day 21 Black History Month Write It! Series  *Photo of the Day*

Jackie Ormes (1911 – 1985)is known as the first African-American woman cartoonist with a syndicated comic strip. Her confident, smart and independent cartoon characters--Torchy Brown, Candy, Patty-Jo, and Ginger--delighted readers.

Jackie Ormes’ life would be an entertaining biopic. Her characters, Torchy Brown,
Candy, Patty-Jo, and Ginger were smart, stylish, and socially savvy. Set in the
1940s or 1950s, the lives of her leading ladies would also create an enjoyable
film or series.
