The Khem Comic Fest is an annual convention founded by comic book creator and educator Naseed Gifted in 2014 that features creators of comics, books, film, and other media with a focus on artists and characters of color.  The goal of the event is to use comic books, animation, films and popular culture to develop youth literacy and expression through S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology Engineering, Arts and Math). In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the Khem Comic Fest will go to the Malcolm X Shabazz High School. The event is co-sponsored by PBS Media and Malcolm X Shabazz High School of Newark, NJ. Last year 1500 visitors came through our doors to purchase everything from comic books, movies, art and games to jewelry and beauty products.
