What We Do

"The House" connects people to build a community based on a shared love of science fiction, fantasy, gaming, table-top gaming, and Afrofuturism while providing a safe space to explore geek culture.
Through game nights, community events, our community blog, and podcast, we share a safe space to explore our favorite hobbies, nerd/geek culture, and bring the community together, without ethnic boundaries.

Interesting Info

Our programs generate a sense of belonging where the community as a whole can discuss pertinent issues using nerd culture as a catalyst for conversation.
The House Community School and Young History Detectives provide structured conversations that delve into the histories that stay in the margins.
This years virtual programs like AfroCon went international! With participants in England, Kenya, Nigeria and Thailand.
