Honest Comics Drawn By Black Guy Depict What It Was Like Being The One Black Man In A White Work Environment In The 1960s – Photos

There’s a lot of drama and discrimination in the workplace, but probably only a handful of people have experienced the race discrimination as much as the people of color who started entering predominantly white offices a few decades ago.

Tom Floyd was born in Gary, Indiana in 1929 and operated his own advertising firm before working as a designer for the Inland Steel Company. There, his insights on bias dynamics were formed.

“As a ‘BLACK’ white collar worker having willingly and conscientiously taken an active part in America’s leading social pre-occupation… An experiment called ‘Integration’ … I feel compelled to assess my total experience on discrimination, and perhaps the experiences of other Blacks by saying….

‘INTEGRATION IS A Tom Floyd commented.

Floyd used his personal experience as the only black man working in a white environment in the 60s, showcasing the absurd reality he was forced to be a part of.

The cartoonist was a proponent of meaningful unfair understanding and cooperation. His comic series ‘Integration is was released in 1969, a time where the vast majority of works like it were rejected by publishers, too scared to deal with such a sensitive subject. Luckily, Floyd’s work managed to squeeze its way into the pressing machine, and people say it’s relevant even today.
