Core Values
ART

We celebrate the many ways art shows up in the geek community. From cosplay to comics, art is the material manifestation of one’s culture, expression, and history.

Culture

HBCUs prioritize Acultural awareness and empowerment of the African Diaspora. HBCU Con strives to affirm the vitality of black culture in geek spaces and media.

Scholarship

Scholarship is at the core of every HBCUs foundation, and an inexplicit precursor to geek and nerd culture.

Integrity

Integrity is crucial to the sustainability and growth of any individual or community. HBCU Con will always strive to embody what it means to “Do The Right Thing.”

Our MIssion

The HBCU experience has played a vital role in shaping who we are as nerds, and continues to serve as a hub to black nerds around the world. This unique lifestyle is rooted in the African diaspora’s contributions to academia and culture, from its adjacent organizations to its pioneering nerds of the community. HBCUs were among the first institutionalized safe spaces for black nerds in the Americas. HBCU Con seeks to highlight the context and vitality of these spaces via its special events, programs, and campaigns.

Our Core Values

Our core values are essential to how we function as an organization, including the selection process of organizations and individuals with whom we choose to partner. We take pride in creating spaces that welcome and affirm geeks of all genders, sexualities, fandoms, occupations, religions, and ages…while centering the experiences of black nerds on a global scale. Pan-Africanism, the practice of unity among African descendants around the world, is a critical value of HBCUs.
