A VIRTUAL USER EXPERIENCE

AfroComicCon is a Fun, Educational, and Interactive Event for the whole family!

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the annual event started in 2017 by the Oakland Technology & Education Center (OTEC)
will be held virtually and free to the public via the AfroComicCon website.

AfroComicCon 2020 Reloaded will be a day full of exciting panels, screenings of the AFCC International Film Festival winners, Entertainment, Gaming, Cosplay, and Special Guests, as well as a Virtual Marketplace!

Panels are scheduled across multiple interests including Comics, Writing, Animation, Fitness, Social Justice, and Writing. Each panel will be hosted by a thought leader in each discipline including celebrity guests, industry experts, and creatives.

Also, participants and fans of all ages will enjoy entertainment throughout the day. Including a Live DJ stream, a Gaming tournament, Film Festival, musical guests, and a Virtual Cosplay Competition.

AfroComicCon’s goal is to provide a welcoming and safe virtual space for underrepresented nerds of color. Regardless of age, gender identity, sexual preference, religious beliefs, or special needs, all are invited to celebrate science-fiction, fantasy, comic books, gaming, and more in this special virtual event.

and Artists of Color!
