AKINOLA LASEKAN: Cartooning, Art, and Nationalism at the Dawn of a New Nigeria

This book chronicles the life and times of Akinola Lasekan, auto-didact and self-motivated artist, cartoonist-crusader, culture enthusiast, fierce nationalist and a teacher  who carved out an enduring and brave niche for himself in spite of the arrogance of the blatantly racist British colonial regime. His paintings and drawings continue to elicit admiration and introspection while his brilliant activism (as a pioneer cartoon journalist) has traversed the Nigerian political sphere over the past half century.
