We love a fun exhibition and ok…so its not exactly fashion related BBBUUUUTTTT its African inspired and come on now….its just so coool! Who doesn’t like comic books and superheros?? Am i the only one waiting for Starwars to come to the cinema, Avatar 2 and any other Marvel extravaganza that is coming to the big screen?? So there you go we all have pretended we were superman or WonderWoman before but there was never a superhero (until Will Smith 🙂 ) who looked like an African. So I just had to celebrate this exhibition.

Created by Jon Daniel, the exhibition will take place in 2016 and is highly anticipated!

Born in south west London, Jon Daniel found his positive Black role models in the West Indian culture of his family and the African American culture of the US.

In his late 20s he began collecting comics, games and action figures featuring positive Black role models of history and fiction, feeling that they most strongly embodied the era of his childhood and his search for identity.

Celebrating the importance of role models and icons in combating the legacies of racism and discrimination, Afro Supa Hero provides a snapshot of a childhood journey to adulthood, shown through Jon’s personal collection of pop cultural heroes and heroines of the African diaspora.

AFRO SUPA® HERO Exhibition first of which took place at the V&A Museum of Childhood from 19th Sept 2013 – 9th February 2014 is back for 2016:
