Last year my post about where to find African-American artists, panels and events at New York Comic Con was really popular, so this year I decided to do it again. Obviously, these events are not exclusive to just African-Americans, but if you are interested in supporting African-American artists and have no idea where to find them at the Javits Center, then this post is for you. Please let me know if I’ve missed anyone or anything! (If you want to know more about where the title comes from, click here). I will be updating this post daily through out the con!
