    The Bronx Museum of the Arts welcomes the Black Speculative Arts Movement (BSAM) 2017 Convention, #BSAMFUTURISMO2017. BSAM is an annual Afrofuturism, black comics, film, and arts convention held throughout the United States and abroad.

    BSAM encompasses different positions or basis of inquiry: Afrofuturism, Astro Blackness, Afro-Surrealism, Ethno Gothic, Black Digital Humanities, Black (Afro-future female or African Centered) Science Fiction, The Black Fantastic, Magical Realism, and The Esoteric. BSAM conventions include live performances, seminars, classes, hands on workshops, a full international film festival via MECCAcon, plays, sales of comics, art, and artisan creators, and much more. Students are welcome to submit proposals to participate.

    BSAM annual conventions were co-founded by associate professor and chair of the Humanities department at Harris-Stowe State University, Reynaldo Anderson, and founder of Midwest Ethnic Convention for Comics and Arts (MECCA), Maia Crown Williams.
