Writing an article about pop/geek culture and African-Americans is a difficult task for me. While I can certainly discuss academic knowledge, objective facts, or logical arguments, I find it far harder to write about the human and subjective side. As I have not lived these lives, how can I speak for others’ experiences?
Thus, I refuse to do so and will instead let people speak for themselves. What follows are the experiences of three PoC geeks and creators, discussing their pursuits and careers with their own voices. I hope readers find their words informative, enlightening, and inspiring, and carry that insight to others.
I would like to thank the following for joining me…
- Danielle Grace, author, and poet;
- Herman “Ninjasmacks” Brown, webcomic artist; and
- Holdt, vidder, and author
So, could you please tell me how each of you got started in the world of geekdom?
