Virtuous Con: Black History Month’s virtual floor show celebrates Black creatives. Four virtual “floors” will feature Indie artists and exhibitors dedicated to science fiction, fantasy, comic books, anime, and more in a live interactive virtual space. Complete with virtual “booths” where vendors interact live with attendees about their products. This real-time interaction with convention-goers has positioned Virtuous Con as one of the most successful events in the genre space during the pandemic. 

As a Black woman-owned convention, Virtuous Con: Black History Month has a special meaning for founder and award-winning author Cerece Rennie Murphy (The Order of the Seers, The Wolf Queen), “Often, for Black History Month, there is a focus on struggle and oppression,” Murphy says, “but we really wanted to highlight creators who have been creating a new narrative of stories throughout their careers,” Murphy says. “We’re about leveraging creative freedom to expand the narratives and mediums where marginalized voices can thrive. Each of our vendors and guests is a shining example of that!” 

Virtuous Con returns February 12 and 13th, and tickets for Virtuous Con are available through their website at https://virtuouscon.com/
