BlackSci-Fi.com will be in attendance at the 3rd annual Blerdcon convention from July 12-14. We will be covering the popular pop culture celebration, meeting up with fans, blerds, cosplayers, and creatives alike at the 3 day extravaganza. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, VA.
As explained on the website, “Blerdcon is an event that highlights and celebrates Blerd culture and creates a marketplace of ideas where sharing that culture can take place with proper context, attribution and positivity in an inclusive environment.”
“Blerdcon is derived from the term “Blerd” which is short for black nerd. Blerd culture encompasses creatives, fans, producers who are and have been contributing to every fandom, but don’t get the recognition or notoriety.”
“Blerdcon celebrates our connection with LGBTQ, the disabled, POCs and the international community!”
BlackSci-Fi.com’s very own M’Shai Dash (staff writer, and social media maestro) will be moderating a panel titled “Black Fantasy: Is This A Telling of What’s To Come” on Saturday at 7pm in the Lincoln room at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport.
