Black Nerd Problems

William is the co-founder of Black Nerd Problems, a website that focuses on pop and nerd/geek culture from the perspective of people of color. Seeing a disappointing lack of representation in pop culture journalism, William and his cofounder Omar Holmon launched Black Nerd Problems in 2014, and have grown the website enormously in the years since, including a six-figure social media fan following. BNP content includes everything from comic book reviews to TV show recaps to think pieces. What began as nine contributors has blossomed to over thirty active writers.
