We promised to be there and we delivered! The ECBACC crew came out strong for the Schomburg Center’s first Comic Book Festival, held Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013, in Harlem, NY.
President and Founder Yumy Odom (center), Vice President Akinseye Brown (left), Secretary Shenkarr Davis (right), and Director of Promotions Terri Heard manned the ECBACC exhibition table to an overflow crowd at the wildly popular event. Attendees were also able to hear Odom expound on the dynamic of “White Scripts and Black Supermen: Black Masculinities in Comic Books,” the documentary by Georgia State University professor and filmmaker Dr. Jonathan Gayles, for which Odom was interviewed. The documentary was shown during the festival and ECBACC is in talks with Gayles in hopes of bringing his film to our May 18, 2013, convention.
