The House of Afros, Capes & Curls is an organization whose goal is to connect people from diverse backgrounds and build a community based on a shared love of science fiction, fantasy, gaming, and Afrofuturism, while providing a safe space to explore the artistic literary and historic merits of geek culture.
The House was created as a vehicle for POC to build more inclusive environments to engage around seemingly non-traditional spaces such as gaming, comics, science fiction, media, and technology. We want to ensure that the representation of and consumption by POC is normalized rather than seen as an anomaly. We strive to increase representation for adults and youth of color, create programs that build community and create programming that generates a sense of belonging where the community as a whole can discuss pertinent and sensitive issues using science fiction, fantasy, comics, and games as a catalyst for conversation.
The Young History Detectives are getting ready for the SteamPunk Tea Party with a morning of coding, experiments, and fun. All youth participants will received a custom kit with activities and a k-12 ticket to the SteamPunk Tea Party on June 18.
