Young, Black & Anime

Hosted By: Khapelle K.

It’s a six-week program that brings together 10-15 black and underrepresented youth aged 15-18 to dive into the world of manga and anime creation. This project is all about empowering us to be the architects of our own stories and bringing diverse voices into the world of anime.

Every Saturday for six weeks, we get to collaborate, learn, and create under the guidance of professional anime and writing mentors. It’s like a dream come true for any anime enthusiast who wants to not just enjoy anime but actually be a part of creating it. The best part? We, the youth, lead the project. It’s our ideas, our creativity, and our vision that take center stage.

Youth ages 10 to 19 years old.
