The Black Comix Arts
Festival (BCAF) 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. The two-day event includes a grand expo, kids
activities, film screenings, panels and conversations, cosplay events
and much more.
In conjunction with the BCAF, the San Francisco Public Library is hosting an author panel featuring the best of the Afrofuturist genre. The event includes Nalo Hopkinson, Jewelle Gomez, Nnedi Okorafor, Ayize Jama Everett, Brian McGee, and John Jennings. It happens on Sunday, 1/17 from 1:00 – 4:00 in the Koret Auditorium of the Main Library (100 Larkin St).
