CHICAGO — The cries of “Wakanda forever” won’t be dying down anytime soon.

Black Panther fans are forming their own convention.

The first ever “WakandaCon” will be held in Chicago this summer.

Sadly, it’s not in suburban Wauconda.

Instead, fans will congregate at the Hilton Hotel downtown from August 3rd through the 5th.

Organizers say they were inspired by the film to celebrate African American culture.

Tickets are $35.
