Moses L. Tucker was an engraver, illustrator and caricaturist from Atlanta, Georgia. Little is known of his history, but in the late 1880s and early 1890s, he produced a range of satirical cartoons for the Indianapolis Freeman. The editor, Edward E Cooper, introduced Tucker in 1889 as an expert in lampooning African Americans, with prior experience with an humorous newspaper in Atlanta called the Georgia Cracker. Freeman readers appreciated Tucker's civil rights drawings but roundly critiqued his more negative portrayals of rural African Americans.
