Black to the Future in the Metaverse for Families of Color and Culture William Jackson, M.Ed. Lead Organizer for Youth and Teen Conference 

There is a commemoration inviting the community to attend a Celebration
of Black History Month virtually that will be held Saturday, February 26th from 10am to 4pm. The Black Meta Fest 2022 is inviting youth, teens and young adults with their parents to a virtual event in celebration of Black History Month on a virtual tour of the Metaverse and upcoming Web 3.0


This event is an introduction to help parents understand what the Metaverse is, what NFTs are, how youth, teens and young adults globally may be affected and influenced with emerging technologies. This is a FREE event with the Lead Organizers William and Aida Jackson (The XSTREAM TEAM), and Natalie Hannans (WaterGirlRaw) working in collaboration

with Black Meta Fest 2022.

Portions of the event will be held on Zoom and on Metaverse platforms. Digital works created by students will be placed on youth friendly sites like Crypto Kids Gallery and WaterGirlRaw’s Gallery both in virtual spaces for families to tour and see how future technologies will potentially be used by digital artists, digital

creators and digital innovators.

Presenters will include local students, students from South Africa, teachers, and digital entrepreneurs. The changes in technology are currently affecting digital currencies, employment opportunties in technology, equitability in ownerships of digital properties and how future generations will invest and make purchases with digital monies. The future is now and Blacks and those of the Diaspora need to be prepared for cashless societies, digital currencies, virtual educational opportunties and global partnerships. The youth/teen and young adult conference on Saturday, February

26th will have business owners, entrepreneurs, educators and students sharing

their journeys onto platforms and spaces that are virtual and digital.

Registration for families is free at and parents must

be with their children at all times because there will be access to spaces on

the metaverse.
