This is not the only fan convention that has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. FanimeCon and Anime Expo deferred their event to 2021. MAGWest, Crunchyroll Expo and SacAnime are still ongoing but plans might change depending on the status of the pandemic.
Afro Comic Con is a convention that works to empower and shine a light on the contributions to geek culture by communities that have been historically disenfranchised.
