Black Joy Parade 2019!

Calling all Cosplayers! Join us in representing all colors of the Diaspora and culture at the Black Joy parade, February 24th.  Meet us at 12 pm at the latest at 14th & Harrison Streets in Oakland!

AfroComicCon celebrates the vast range of creativity and artistic body expression of our community and invites cosplayers or people who just want to dress up in their own creation to join us in the AfroComicCon section of the parade!

The parade will begin at the corner of 14th St. and Harrison St., Oakland, CA, at 12:30 PM. It will finish at the corner of Broadway and 20th St., and we will be celebrating in the four blocks between there and the corner of 22nd St. and Webster St. AfroComicCon will have a booth. There will be music, food and lots of vendors!

Genine Tyson

Genine Tyson is a writer and aspiring novelist living in The Most Expensive Place on Earth, a.k.a, the Bay Area in California. She's been writing since she was five years old, holds a degree in Creative Writing and English Literature, but is a bloomer with the getting serious about writing thing. A cat lady with no cats (none are allowed in her building), Genine is a humble administrator by day and a slayer of dragons (or a watcher of Netflix, depending on how the writing goes) at night. Her favorite things are love, magic, contemplating the nature of man and the Universe, and wondering what the hell Fox is doing with their programming. (Seriously- WTF?). She often writes about those same subjects (not Fox, though, it's a lost cause) and hopes you enjoy her carefully crafted prose on those things interspersed with the occasional short story. She loves to hear from readers, so comment or drop her a line! You can follow her on Twitter @geninet or her Facebook page.
