Woke Season 2 Plot

The series follows Keef Knight, a cartoonist who tries to depict light humor with his cartoons. One day he gets assaulted by a group of policemen which basically was rooted from racism as Keef is a Black African-American. The shock of the incident tangled a few wires in Keef’s brain and he started to hear non-living entities as if they are humans. 

The second season deals with the ‘artivist’ side of Keef who has fifteen thousand social media followers and express his thoughts on societal issues. Being a black activist, Keef is expected to openly talk about other pressing social issues as well. Though the narration of events is comical, the sentiment behind is very much real and thought-provoking.
