Balogun will be screening the new steamfunk movie "Rite of Passage"!

He will also be on a Steamfunk 101 panel discussion afterwards:

Steamfunk is an increasingly popular style of art and writing and a rapidly-growing area of study that combines the existing world of “steampunk” with the history and context of the African and African-American cultures.  This introduction to the world of steam funk is presented by two of the foremost leading authorities on the subject. 

Check out EagleCon's other programming and buy tickets from their website! I'm hoping to get a ride out that day so I can finally meet the man, fingers crossed!
