The Schomburg Center's Annual Black Comic Book Festival celebrates the rich tradition of black comix with a two-day event featuring panel discussions, film screenings, hands-on workshops and exhibit tables with premier black comic artists. 

Black Comic Book Festival participants are encouraged to wear their favorite cosplay costumes and to register on-site for the annual cosplay show.

Participants are also invited to contribute to the Schomburg Center’s growing collection of Black independent comic books by bringing single copies of old or new titles from their home collection. All donations will become a part of the Schomburg’s unique and growing archive documenting Black comix and the Black speculative arts movement.
