Buena Gardens and the San Francisco Public Library’s main library on January 15-16, 2017.
A partnership of the Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation and the San Francisco Public Library, BCAF is part of the Black Comix Arts Festival program that celebrates African Americans’ creativity in the comic arts and popular visual culture and is dedicated to the notion that all audiences deserve to be subject in the culture in which we participate. It is part of the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebrations in San Francisco
Since launching in 2015 BCAF has attracted thousands of attendees and some of the celebrated artists and writers in the comics, graphic novel and speculative fiction spaces. Its inaugural event was chosen by USA Today editors and readers as one of the ten best art festivals in the U.S.
The two-day event is free to the public and includes a grand expo, kids activities, film screenings, panels and conversations, and much more.
