Atlanta’s Onyxcon is one of many conventions that highlight and celebrate the African Diaspora in comics, movies and related media. The first one started in 1993 in Chicago, called the Black Age of Comics Convention, and that and others around the country inspired local artist and actor Joseph R. Wheeler III to start his own.
