The terrorist killings at the office of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo aroused France and prompted an outpouring of sympathy here in the U.S. Franco Vietnamese cartoonist Clement Baloup and French Art historian Justin Wadlow had worked extensively with several of the victims in the extremist killings. Wadlow and Baloup recently came to ISU as part of the Presidential Speaker series. They talked about the importance of political cartooning and Baloup recalled their fallen colleagues in this conversation with GLT’s Charlie Schlenker. Go to wglt.org
