The Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation is pleased to inaugurate a new annual event during MLK2015, the Black Comix Arts Festival (BCAF).
BCAF’s mission is to celebrate the creativity and subjectivity of African Americans in the comic arts and popular visual culture and is dedicated to the notion that all audiences deserve to be subject in the culture in which we participate. It includes a grand expo, kids activities, film screenings, panels and conversations, cosplay events and much more.
Join the thousands of MLK2015 celebrants at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Gardens, and experience the launch of BCAF!
The expo and activities are free and open to the public. - See more at: http://bcaf.norcalmlkfoundation.org/#sthash.z9CVAtGV.dpuf
