AfroComicCon will be two days full of exciting panels, screenings of the AFCC International Film Festival winners, entertainment, gaming, cosplay, and special guests, as well as a
virtual marketplace!

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.


PROGRAMMING

Panels are scheduled across multiple interests including Comics, Writing, Animation, Fitness, Community, 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, Film Festival, musical guests, and a Virtual Cosplay Competition.

AfroComicCon’s goal will be 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.
