More than NBA 2k: Representation and the Gaming Community

Have you ever struggled to create a character with a skin tone darker than beige but lighter than midnight purple? Does it bother you that the majority of Black protagonists are either committing Grand Theft Auto or tied to the Mafia? Are you tired of the boxers and dance fighters always being black? Then this is a discussion you want to be a part of! The panel would discuss the lack of diverse strong minority characters in video game franchises, and the stigma that black gamers almost exclusively play games falling into the sports franchise genre. The intent is to dive deep into the issues that affect gamers of color and through open discussion explore ways to reverse these trends.
