Afrofuturism: Black 2 the Future
What do Janelle Monae's android, the technology of Wakanda, and fiction about a woman who time travels to the plantation that enslaved her ancestors have in common? They express Afrofuturism, a Black aesthetic that employs science and speculative fiction tropes. In fiction, film, music, and art, students explore how Afrofuturism enables resistance to marginalization of Black experiences in the past, present, and future, and engages with the sociohistorical and political forces that shape Black communities.
