GC #23: Exploring Black Geekdom

On this week’s Geek Confidential Luke Kerr and Melodie Aikels are joined by Jamey Giddens, Mo Walker and J Bernard Jones to explore Black Geekdom.

The group discusses what being a geek means to them. They share who their real and fictional heroes are.

Will the success of films like Hidden Figures and potential success of Black Panther encourage Hollywood to tell stories other than “white savior” movies.

They discuss the best depictions of black characters in television. Why are there so few black lead characters in fantasy television?

All this and much more on the latest Geek Confidential podcast.
