BCAF hosted The Ethnogothic: Horror and Conjure in Storytelling panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
The co-creators of the term Ethnogothic, Stanford Carpenter (Black & Brown Comix Arts Festival; the University of Chicago Oriental Institute) and two-time Eisner winner, John Jennings (Abrams Megascope), were in conversation with an all-star panel, including Tananarive Due (UCLA; Horror Noire; The Keeper, Megascope), Steven Barnes (UCLA; The Keeper, Megascope), and Lea Anderson (Fangoria), to discuss the history and the emergence of Black horror as a genre, its impact on popular culture, and the way in which Black horror is used as a speculative space for thinking and imagining the future.
The rise of ethnogothic literature has served as fertile ground for increasingly popular, literary works, feature films and drama series.reviewer Christine Pasalo Norland
