Black superheroes come to Opa-locka

(Miami Times)

Sci-fi buffs Troy Bernier and Jeff Carroll have been wandering around Miami for a little over a year, looking for a place to host their idea of a sci-fi convention focused on diversity.

Bernier and Carroll’s idea came to fruition on Friday when they hosted the first South Florida Comic Book and Sci-Fi Expo at the Opa-locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC). Dressed in the costumes and T-shirts of their favorite superheroes, attendees got the chance to meet and interact with several Black sci-fi writers and illustrators.

Nikisha Williams, OLCDC’s chief operating officer, said this sort of event is something unusual to Opa-locka.
