Were the first American fandom/comic/geek conventions segregated?
Comic book conventions in Atlanta Ga. started in the 1970s. The participants were mainly of European decent. There was no discrimination. The con spaces were first come, first served. Back then, people that went to conventions liked comics, and wanted to share with others who liked comics. I know because I was a member of the comic book club that sponsored the first comic book convention in Atlanta. I didn't attend the ones in California, so I can't comment about them.
