Black + Nerd = BLERD, a blend of a micro-Comic Con with the intersectionality of social issues facing people of color.

A two-day conference of panels, workshops, film screenings, gaming, comic books, Sci-fi/Horror/Fantasy Book Readings, and a Children’s Area.

I had the honor to work with ImageNation Cinema Foundation as the programmer for their short film showcase. This showcase will feature the work of several amazing filmmakers, including Celia C. Peters, Damon N. Colquhoun, Ytasha L. Womack, Keith Josef Adkins, Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes, Luchina Fisher, James Bowman and myself!

All taking place Automatic Studios on Saturday, 29 July from 3pm – 5pm. Celebrating the fantastic nerd in you!
