The New Nerd is a mini documentary series highlighting black nerd interests in anime, comics, cosplay, video games and their experiences within those mediums. Produced by Yahya Ismail of Yahzilla Productions, this lighthearted series gives authentic viewpoints from influential black nerds. Obviously, we could immediately relate to the opinions in the series. It was refreshing to see a series like this on a mainstream platform like Amazon.
If you’re going to represent people, represent them well. I’m not asking you for more or less, I’m just asking you for better.
We’re just not hip hop, We’re just not sports. There’s an entire culture of us out here.
The New Nerd is an enjoyable, digestible glimpse into the culture. Please make sure to check out the The New Nerd series on Amazon Prime and support black creators.
