Aaron McGruder, Creator Of The “Controversial” and Hit Show ‘The Boondocks’ Co-Wrote ‘Red Tails’

Known for the creating the nationally syndicated comic strip “The Boondocks’’ in the late 1990s, McGruder gained fame and major fans for his usually dead-on and often biting commentary on hot-button social and political issues. The popularity of McGruder and “The Boondocks” soon moved beyond the pages of newspapers and into a full-fledged weekly cartoon show. That added visibility gained McGruder an even larger fan base—but also increased his number of hardcore critics.

A few years ago, McGruder decided he’d take a break from the comic strip that made him a household name, and focus on other, nonanimated projects. This week he reemerges as the co-writer of a film that may very well surprise some.

After a 23-year quest to get a film called Red Tails made by a major Hollywood studio, filmmaker George Lucas decided to finance the project himself. The movie would chronicle the lives of Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American pilots placed in an experimental training program during World War II. Once the Star Wars creator decided he’d spend nearly $58 million to do the film, he wanted, he also decided the mostly historicallyn based script needed a fresher take. Enter Aaron McGruder.
