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.
