> Dear colleagues,
> The 9th Annual Schomburg Black Comic Book Festival starts next week on January 13th! It’s a new year, and time to celebrate Black fantasy, Afrofuturism, and Black imagination in world-building and freedom dreaming! Among the many highlights of the festival are launch events for several new titles, a how-to-draw Black superheroes workshop, and a tribute to award-winning actor and former Schomburg Center theater teacher Chadwick Boseman, presented by some of his former students.
> As always, the festival is free, and you can register here. It’s also virtual for the first time, but that means it’s easier than ever to “bring” your students.
> The festival takes place over four days this year. Below we have listed select sessions that may interest you and your students. In the morning of each day of the festival, we will send all registered patrons a Livestream link for that day’s events.
> You can find the full festival schedule at SchomCom.org. Discover new Black comic artists at the Schomburg Shop and our Exhibitors Showcase.
> If you miss a session, you can watch it later! We will post each completed session on SchomCom.org so you and your students can restream whenever is convenient for you.
> If you want to attend the festival live with your students, one way to do so would be to follow the Livestream link for that particular session, and then share your screen and sound with your students on Zoom (or whatever platform you are using to meet with them). That way you can mute the audio if you want to have a side conversation with your class, answer any of their questions, etc.
> If you and/or your students want to participate in the Cosplay Showcase, the deadline for submissions is Monday, January 11th at midnight and the instructions are here. The full showcase with all submissions will be available on the website at some point during the festival.
