There’s another dope Black Comic Book Day event going down in Atlanta February 16th, it’s called Sankofa and it’s brought to you by the creators of Onyxcon. There’s been a big buzz about this event for a few months now and after the success of The Black Comic Book festival in Harlem I’m sure Sankofa is gonna be bananas! If my budget was right I would goto this event but I’m saving my ends to make it down Onyxcon later this year 4sho! Below is a description about Onyxcon’s Sankofa:
