A celebration of Afro-Futurism, Tech, and Black superheroes in film, gaming, television, and comic books.
Recent movies, graphic novels, and other media have ushered in a new wave of thought about issues surrounding the African Diaspora and a new future for Black people around the world. The image of an African country with advanced technology and equality has inspired some of the world's greatest thinkers and all of Black Twitter to create, think, and respond.
WAKANDACON is chance to take the conversation offline and into the real world.
