WakandaCon Coming to Chicago

A one-day celebration full of “Afro-Futurism, Tech, and Black superheroes in film, gaming, television, and comic books,” is coming to Chicago according to WakandaCon.

The event is set for Summer 2018 and will be a place for gathering and conversation.

“Recent movies have ushered in a new wave of thought about issues surrounding the African Diaspora and a new future for Black people around the world,” as stated on the WakandaCon website. “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.”
