June 16-17 — Blacktasticon — Atlanta, Georgia
In 2012 six Black Speculative Fiction writers formed the State of Black Science Fiction collective in order to bring attention to their work and the work of other indie Black Speculative Fiction creators. Since that time, the State of Black Science Fiction has become a positive force of Black Speculative Fiction in Metro Atlanta and throughout the country. In 2018 we’re back again with Blacktasticon 2018.
Major guests include Linda Addison, Mshindo Kuumba, John Jennings, and more. Major events include The Blacktasticon Cosplay Parade, The Mahogany Masquerade, Blacktastic Film Festival, and more. Learn more at: https://www.blacktasticon.com/
