In case you missed it, Fandom has been celebrating Black History all month long, from blogs to social posts to roundtable discussions, and it’s been wonderful seeing so many communities get involved. To close out the celebration, we have one final surprise in store that might be of interest for this community!
Fandom will be hosting a panel discussion - Black Voices & Content in Genre IP - to celebrate Black culture and representation in entertainment, and we would like to invite you all to attend and participate! This will be an open, in-depth discussion spotlighting the journeys of Black creators and innovators in TV, comic books, stage, and film.
The panel will consist of Sanford Greene, the Illustrator behind Image Comic’s Bitter Root, which is soon to be a movie helmed by Regina King and Ryan Coogler; Steve Harper, Co-Executive Producer for Stargirl; and Cameron Johnson, Co-Creator & Executive Producer of Tom Swift. It will be moderated by Joelle Monique, an iHeartRadio Executive Producer & Entertainment Writer.
You can watch the livestream on our Twitch channel on Monday, February 28th at 12PM EST. If you can’t attend live, don’t worry! The VOD should be available at 1PM EST when the panel is finished, so you can check that out whenever you get a chance.
Hope to see you all there watching and chatting with us!
