The need to champion Black culture remains as relevant as it was last year, when Black Heroes Matter, a movement for Independent Black Comics, was born. Come to the Black Heroes Matter panel to hear Brother Uraeus (Jacyen Wise) direct a lively discussion on what's changing for Black people in comics, science fiction, genre and pop culture, with Carl Varnado (Blacks in Gaming), Ryan Benjamin (Teen Titans), David Walker (Luke Cage) and Faith Cheltenham (YesBlackPeople.com).
