The Boston Comics in Color Festival is the culmination
of a movement co founded by

two Boston-based comic creators,

Barrington Edwards and Cagen Luse.

  In 2013 they connected with one

another over a mutual love of comics

while in an art exhibition together. 

In 2015 they traveled
to the Schomburg Library's
Black Comic Book Festival
and were both blown
away by
the sight of hundreds of

people of color enjoying and

creating comics. It was a paradigm shift

to even realize that places like this exist. 

On the ride back to home they both felt that Boston needs to have a space like this that not only celebrates stories by creators of color but is a space for Blerds to be themselves and connect with one another.
