Midwest Ethnic Convention for Comics and Arts – MECCA
SATURDAY, November 3, 2018
Savannah State University
GEORGIA- Midwest Ethnic Convention for Comics and Arts – MECCA, aka MECCAcon, is a large comic book/literacy convention and international film festival held nationally and globally, and established in Detroit, MI. The primary reason M.E.C.C.A was established was to instill knowledge primarily in the younger art culture.
Along with the comic book convention, we also have a full international film festival, MECCAcon IFF registered under Ava DuVernay‘s company ARRAY, that runs all day along with the comic con. Since we introduced the film festival to MECCAcon in 2015, we have had award winning filmmaker Ka’ramuu Kush curate, as well as prominent indie filmmakers such as Jackie “J.J.” Stone, Evita Castine, dream hampton, Nosa Igbinedion, Omar DISTRKT Jones, Daye Flowers, Korstiaan Vandiver, Abdul Ndadi, Peter Tukei Muhumuza, Donnie Leapheart, Tony Patrick, Pete Chatmon, Yolonda Ross, Abdul Nnadi, Jay Sweet, Pete Tekei Muhumuza, Roye Okupe, Zwelesizwe Ntui, and many more.
