Cartoon Network commemorates Black History Month beginning Saturday, February 1 with the launch of “Drawn To,” a digital interview series honoring Black excellence both past and present. The four-part series hosted by “Craig of the Creek’s” Philip Solomon (voice of Craig), will highlight Black kid history makers Elijah Precciely, Grace Callwood, Jahkil Jackson and Justin Wilson and what this month means to them.
Each will tell the story of how prominent and outspoken historical African American figures such as Barack Obama and Marian Wright Edelman have drawn them to make a difference in their communities through civic engagement, the arts and music. The month-long campaign will go into rotation with weekly episodes on the Cartoon Network App and social.
“Craig of the Creek” is one of CN’s breakout original series, co-created by three-time Emmy-nominated “Steven Universe” writers Matt Burnett and Ben Levin. It follows a precocious animated character named Craig, as he leads his best friends J.P. and Kelsey on comical journeys at their neighborhood creek, transforming everyday afternoons into thrilling expeditions through imaginative play. The series taps into an emotional sense of nostalgia for audiences and connects with viewers through its relatable characters and universal storylines.
