Origin Story

FullSizeRender-12.png

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 Festiva
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.
