Nerds of Color recently featured Bryan Thao Worra, the president of the Science Fiction Poetry Association as he discussed principles of science fiction poetry and the importance of the imagination for refugee communities while he was a part of the CTRL+ALT culture lab on imagined futures convened by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center in New York.

Nerds of Color is a community of fans who love superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy and video games but are not afraid to look at nerd/geek fandom with a culturally critical eye.

Three years ago, spoken word artist Bao Phi eloquently and presciently summed up the Nerds of Color raison d’être in this column for the Star Tribune.
