      IUF Holds Its First Annual Conference 2006

      Exploring African American Speculative Fiction



      New York, NY. ---- (IUF) The Invisible Universe Foundation, an
      organization that researches and promotes the history of African
      Americans in speculative fiction literature, cinema and related media
      will hold its first annual conference during Black history month on
      February 18, 2006 at The City College of New York. The Invisible
      Universe Foundation is a first of its kind conference examining a
      broad variety of works in African American fantasy, horror and science
      fiction or speculative fiction.
      The conference theme will be devoted to "Black Vampirism in Literature
      and Film," The special guest is L.A. Banks, a prominent African
      American writer of "The Vampire Huntress Legends Series" and author of
      over 17 novels. Admission to the IUF conference is twenty-five
      dollars. It will be held from 1pm to 6pm in the Media and
      Communication Arts Department, rooms 290/291 at 139 Street and Convent
      Avenue.

      Ms. Dukan, founder of the IUF asserts "other events have been held
      around the country featuring black speculative fiction authors and
      filmmakers, but what differentiates the IUF conference is that we
      bring together cinema, literature, animation, comics and video games
      to an open channel of communication."

      With an increase in popularity of Black roles in speculative fiction
      movies and books from Catwoman and X-Men featuring Halle Berry, to
      Wesley Snipes' "Blade trilogy" and as well as the work of Octavia
      Butler, the event is geared to generate an exciting atmosphere that
      will bring together a variety of creative minds discussing African
      American portrayals in speculative fiction. The panel will include
      filmmakers Mike Sargent and Jason Scott Jones, Professors Frances
      Gateward and Kara Lynch and others in the field.

      The conference opening speaker, Ms. Dukan, a graduate from CUNY with a
      Master's Degree in media and communication arts will also screen a 15
      minute segment from her documentary work-in-progress "Invisible
      Universe: a history of blackness in speculative fiction." This event
      will include a raffle drawing with collector's prizes and an
      entertaining closing reception.
      The Invisible Universe Foundation was founded in November of 2005 in
      New York City.
