2016 Black Comix Arts Festival
Hey folks! Today kicks off the 2016 Black Comix Arts Festival (BCAF) in San Francisco. In its second year, this two-day festival “celebrates African Americans’ creativity in the comic arts and popular visual culture and is dedicated to the notion that all audiences deserve to be subject in the culture in which we participate.”Attendees can anticipate a grand expo, kids activities, film screenings, panels and conversations, cosplay events and more. Having enjoyed myself SO much at the inaugural BCAF, I signed up to volunteer as a blogger this year, capturing some of the panels and screenings that will be taking place today. BCAF is part of a larger series of events that celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., organized by The Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation. MLK Weekend (check out the site for more MLK Weekend activities and service opportunities). So come on down to BCAF, and bring the family — IT’S FREE!
