Video game

We need to see black female characters promoted from supporting characters to starring protagonists in video games – GamesRadar+

What a time to be a blerd! A black nerd, that is. Movies, TV shows, and comics have made huge leaps forward when it comes to diversity and representation, with the mammoth successes of Black Panther and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and Ironheart getting her own comic series. But, video games? Well, that’s a very different story… 

The games industry is still standing right at the back of the queue when it comes to diversity and inclusivity. As it currently stands, black characters in video games are mainly relegated to the ‘minor supporting character’ tier and are over-reliant on outdated, one-dimensional stereotypes.
