If you are attending Comic-Con in San Diego at the San Diego Convention Center this weekend, and you support Black Lives Matter, then pack a white shirt, black pants and a black tie. Because this Saturday, July 23, 2016 a group of artists, bloggers, fans and con attendees will cosplay as cast members of The Book of Mormon plus name badges that say “Black Lives Matter” (instead of your name) for a Flash mob photoshoot. Organized by award-winning African-American comic book artist David Walker (Cyborg, Power Man and Iron Fist), the event will be held Saturday, July 23 at 2pm at the Upper Level at the Outside Promenade adjacent to the Sails Pavilion.  In usual flash mob fashion, anyone who shows up can participate. No you don’t have to be African-American to participate and no you don’t necessarily have to cosplay, but Walker is asking that everyone wear a BLM badge.
