About: Cartoonist Morrie Turner was the first African-American artist whose comic strip was widely syndicated. His "Wee Pals" was also the first with a racially mixed group of characters. Here, Diz updates a playmate about a new meaning for the word "bread." Turner often included sides panels under the title "Soul Corner" (right side), where the pals reflect on how grown-ups complicate their lives.
