The first ever Wakandacon took place this weekend in Chicago. It looks like it is going to be major. Wakandacon celebrates black creativity surrounding the great 'Black Panther' film. It is one of the biggest grossing movies of all time and Wakandacon is going to be massive as well. Like the movie, the convention is meant to inspire the creative and positive, and celebrate the African American community. The convention took place nearby Lollapalooza downtown.
"We’ve actually had some lollapalooza people coming over and exploring and checking out panels and everyone’s welcome at wakandacon," co-creator David Barthwell said. It was quite an event.
