Now I KNOW you all didn’t think I was done celebrating all things black geekery just because February is over.
In this special post, I want to show some love and celebrate a very special group that is close to my heart: black women.
It’s no secret that characters of color, well people of color in general (artists, authors, actors, etc.) are regularly on the receiving end of the worst kind of racist and misogynistic denigration.
Anyone who has participated in fandom knows the type of disgusting hatred that the characters and the actresses who portray Tara from True Blood, Guinevere from Merlin and Dr. Martha Jones from Doctor Who regularly receives.
And there’s a reason for that.
