It’s a popular myth that the “nerdier” aspects of fandom — like cosplaying and LARPing — are male-dominated and reserved for non-black fans. But that’s never been true and, in the age of social media, it’s been hugely debunked by the large presence of black female fans who finally get a chance to show off their love for all things nerd and cosplay to the world wide web.
“Golden Age” is a term to label that period in the history of a nation, movement, artistic medium or the like during which its greatest achievements were realized. It is not an absolute term since it does not intend to describe the best possible epoch. That being the case, there can be no doubt that for African Americans in television, the last half of the 1960s was a Golden Age.
