#Roommates, how many of ya’ll identify as “blerds?” Well Blerd City Con is for ya’ll and it’s coming to Brooklyn this week to celebrate all the art, science, film, literature and technology of black nerd culture.

“I want the audience to experience horror, science fiction, and fantasy by the talents of leading writers as well as filmmakers, coders and creators of the African Diaspora who are serving the community of black and Nerdy,” Founder Clairesa Clay told Black Enterprise.

The panels will feature a plethora of black creators and entertainers and one special panel will discuss Afrofuturism, which we got a taste of in “Black Panther.” The mission for the conference is to connect the black community to the talented professionals working within the arts and sciences.
