AfroFuturism: A Performative Lecture

    • Saturday, March 24, 2012
    • 2:00pm until 5:00pm

AfroFuturism as a culture has emerged to render a portrait of the collective history, the present events, and the future prospects of people of color, where heretofore our stories have been skewed, misrepresented, and diminished in the mainstream social narrative. Sampling from the visual, sensual, and literary pallets of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, horror, and magic, Afrofuturism as a genre considers what Blackness means throughout space and time, across the world and through the universe, and what our collective roles will be in shaping the eternally-unfolding future of humanity.

AfroFuturism: A Performative Lecture will feature six women moderator and panelists who will demonstrate and discuss how their creative, artistic, literary, and advocacy work incorporates AfroFuturistic elements, and how they will continue to use Afrofuturism as a tool and mode of expression in future projects.
