Season 1 Episode 10 - Blacktasticon 2018 Afterglow
Welcome to another edition of the NEW WAKANDA Podcast! In this episode, we talk about a crowdfunded Black Art & Media event, BLACKTASTICON, which was held in Atlanta on Juneteenth 2018. Drawing exclusive talent from around the country, this was a signature event that was conceived, crowdfunded and celebrated by a small but loyal group of artisans and curious minds. So how are we impacted, influenced and inspired by these types of events? Do we need MORE or LESS of these types of Black Creative spaces, or is there a need at all to differentiate amidst a rising tide of popular culture conventions? A long and honest conversation from all points is up next.
Join Talynn Kel, Robert Jeffrey II and Dedren Snead as the New Wakanda crew talk about the Black Creative Journey, our fandoms, and building the bridge between popular culture and inclusive representation.
