Boundless: 10 Years of Seeding Black Comic Futures, is an exhibit at the Schomburg Library that celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture’s Black Comic Book Festival.

Make sure to check out the trove of photographs, memorabilia, creator highlights, comic book reading stations, and clips from past festival programs- all drawn from the Schomburg Center’s archival collections. The exhibition illuminates the long history of Black comics and sequential art creators and their motivations to render humor, justice, irony, and futurism in Black aesthetic and liberatory practices from the Golden Age of comic books (1938-1956) to the present.  

The annual comic book festival attracts over 50,000 visitors and has created a huge platform for the diverse range of visual and written content produced by independent creators. In addition to exhibitors, the festival’s annual slate of talks contextualizes Black comics with the ideas moving through the currents of popular culture, mainstream politics, and the comic book industry.
