ABOUT

Heroes, Villains, and Blerds is a SCARBO art event that falls somewhere between a market and a convention. It is meant to be a gathering of black nerds and artists from all fandoms. HV&B is aimed to be an event that creates space and representation for black fans and artists and other POC in the nerd community. HV&B's origin story has just gotten underway, but we hope to continue this event in the future. Today, we start small, but tomorrow gives us so much room to grow.

What Is A Blerd?

Where Black Meets Nerdy

Blerd (n): Blerd describes people of color who enjoy things nerdy and geek regardless of gender, skin tone, sexuality, etc.  The term became popular during 2006 when Donald Faison aka Turk stated he was a blerd in season 6, episode 2 of Scrubs.
