Bio of speaker:
Kelvin Nyeusi-Mawazo is the creator of Black Sun Comics. He expresses Afro-Futurism as the backdrop for the various stories in his publications, and believes that the representation of Black characters is important for readers. Kelvin founded Black Sun Comics in 2016 as a way to write the characters he wishes he could have seen in some of his favourite graphic novels he read while growing up. The five books in the series so far are part of the growing "Afrofuturism" genre. Afrofuturism melds science-fiction and fantasy with African history and culture, blending the past and the future.
