Last week I attended ONYXCON 2013, a progressive and diverse networking event for professionals who appreciate the African Diaspora’s contributions as it relates to popular arts media. This particular event featured a Skype call with budding actor, professional stuntman, and upcoming author, Damion Poitier, via Google Hangouts. The event also featured appearances from authors Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes, Brandon Massey, Kevin Sipp, and Bill Campbell.
Check out some photos of the conference below.
Here’s an excerpt from Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes’s presentation discussing how they used crowd-funding to make their film, Danger Word.
And also watch the trailer for Danger Word below.
