#MECCAcon2015 Photos and Stuff!

Well… MECCAcon2015  is a WRAP! It was a BEAUTIFUL weekend filled to the brim with BEAUTIFUL people. Two venues full to the brim of african and Detroit history were just the right touch for all of our amazing activities! I said NO WAY to the rain, and the rain said AIGHT, CROWN… NO PROB’, lol.
On Friday night, we celebrated all things hip hop, poetry, and spoken word. We held our hip hop night at the museum of all cultural museums and outside instillations, MBAD/ABA African Bead Museum, aka “Dabls”, and it was such a gorgeous night. The sun was out, and the moon followed. Artists such as HoneyComb, One Single Rose, Sheezy, Black Tie Collective, Nick Speed, Seven The General, Mahogany Jones, and Fatt Father filled the stage with amazing vibes and outstanding talent. DJ Jungle held the workshops down along with Nick Speed and others. DJ Los held the stage up from the time he walked thru til the time it was time to pack up, lol. HE DID NOT MOVE, lol. The children and many adults as well enjoyed hands on dj workshop stations where they learned how to make beats as well as spin, courtesy of Spin University!
Saturday was the big day… It was all held at the absolutely gorgeous Detroit Public Library!
We held our comic book convention, as well as introduced our annual independent film festival! Our comic con hosted about 50 vendors from all across the nation, various cultures and backgrounds. We highlighted comic books of all mediums and subjects, as well as graphic illustrations, handmade jewelry, and more. It was a very balanced group with a lot of different energies to offer. MeccaCon also hosted multiple creative workshops to attend as well. 
Our comic panels, although with a few tech glitches, were still a huge hit, and well attended. We started off with WOMEN IN COMICS, curated by Regine Sawyer. Her panel included Dr Sheena Howard, Nicole Marie Burton, Aiesha Little, and Kim Eggleston  That was followed by COMPLEXION OF COMICS, which was curated by Jiba Moleli Anderson. His panel included Anthony Piper, Imani Lateef,  Daniel Zarazua, and Bill Campbell.
Our independent film festival was also well attended. We showcased 9 short films, with this year’s theme being black directors, from all across the country. Filmmakers included Jackie JJ Stone, Donnie Leapheart, Daye Flowers, dream hampton, and more. The highlight of the day was Nick Speed’s documentary, ONE DAY IN DETROIT: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF NICK SPEED.
All in all, it was a very successful event. Special thanks to ALL of our media coverage, and especially our attendees! MASSIVE appreciation to my son and the rest of my volunteers. Your hard work was very necessary, and i could not have kept my head on straight without you. I also want to give MASSIVE love to the Hoye family for them housing many of our out of town artists in their ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL bed n breakfasts!! I also stayed in one to be closer to my artists, as well as the venue. The homes were gorgeous, affordable, clean, and the ambiance was NON COMPARABLE. The home grown AND home cooked breakfast?? I could write an essay. Thank you SO much. 
This was my second year with MeccaCon, but this time i feel as tho I have accomplished more of my goals. I am really excited about planning on 2016, and look forward to seeing YOU there!
