Waiting Rooms Cartoon by Sidney Harris

Title

Waiting Rooms Cartoon by Sidney Harris

Description

Sidney Harris is a cartoonist who has drawn for the New Yorker in addition to Playboy. Here, one man seems to have just gotten off the train. The other man who met him there has noticed that the visitor has seen the train station waiting rooms are segregated. The man says, “Yes, we feel our little old town has clearly moved forward with the times.” This seems to be because the room is labeled “BLACK” instead of the previous “NEGRO” or “COLORED.” The visitor looks horrified.
