Event Details

Blackness in pop culture is often defined based on cliche´ depictions and does not represent the full diverse universe of being black. There’s an overwhelming issue with being too nerdy or not black enough. Black nerds are not one dimensional and are completely cognizant of how race intermingles in geek culture.
