Women in Comics Collective (WinC), is an initiative founded by Regina Sawyer in 2012 to educate, promote and support a movement towards women working in the Comic Books and under other media umbrellas. In their outreach WinC hosts events, workshops and other activities throughout the country. This past weekend, June 30, 2018, we attended one of their events in New York City.
I can’t express how tired I am of seeing black death on my screens. I can’t seem to escape seeing a video of someone killing a Black Person, it’s even shown on the news on replay every hour. I am a Childish Gambino fan and I have to say this music video was disappointing to watch. I listened to the song before watching the video and I liked the song before the video but now I can’t stand to hear it. If you’re on the internet you will end up watching it because everyone is sharing the video, screenshots, memes and think pieces breaking down every meaning of the video. I wonder if it still okay to mention the triggers this video may contain for some people even though it has well over 72 Million views which means there’s a chance you saw the video already and was introduced to the chaotic scenes of death, massacre, suicide and chaos all while black people dance in the foreground.
I haven’t been doing much writing as of late but I’ve made a point to stay on top of my blog reading. And if I can, like and comment more because I’m really bad with that. I’m strolling through my feed and find a post labelled: The Comic Vault Is Nominated For A Second Mystery Blogger Award. Out of curiosity, I click it, read through and what do you know I was also nominated.
First off, Thank you Jamie. Aside from the fact that I comment somewhat often, it never occurred to me that our blog was even on your radar. So major shout out to you. I really enjoy reading your posts. This means a lot to me. Secondly, If you’re a fan of Marvel or DC Comics. You’ll definitely want to check him out on The Comic Vault. F.Y.I he does a pretty awesome Red Hood Cosplay.
