Blacktasticon: A Black Science Fiction Convention

posted in: Blog 0

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.

On June 16th and 17th, 2018 State of Black Science Fiction returns to Atlanta to host Blacktasticon 2018. This convention will be held in the Ferst Student Center featuring celebrity guests Jazzy Ellis, Abongo Humphrey, and Damita Jane. Blacktasticon Day One begins at 10am with an opening ceremony followed by a day full of panels and games in celebration of Black Science Fiction.
