The Co-Chairs of Blacktasticon (SOBSFCon) have decided to present Blacktasticon every two years, so the next convention will be in the summer of 2018.

Bummed out? Cheer up…NubiaOne Fest is coming THIS June 17th and it is guaranteed to be hotter than fish grease!

NubiaOne is the next level of Black Speculative Fiction – a multi-media platform focusing on the development and distribution of Black Speculative Fiction entertainment. The platform consists of various social media sites, including the NubiaOne Channel, which will soon feature original short and feature films and webseries.

NubiaOne has partnered with the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History to bring you a full day of Black Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror created by – and about – heroes and sheroes of Afrikan descent.

NubiaOne Fest features dynamic, educational, entertaining and interactive panel discussions and workshops, an art exhibit, cosplay photoshoot sessions, and vendors of comic books, novels, Afrikan artifacts and maybe even gourmet pot pie, vegan chocolate cake and other goodies.

More details coming soon.

Don’t miss it!
