About the Class
Enter the multiverse of Afrofuturism through the lens of art and media, and consider critical perspectives on race and creative resistance. Who are some of the historical icons and emergent change agents connected to the movement? What makes Afrofuturism both a black aesthetic and a tool for social change? See the new myths and radical visions artists and activists from across the African diaspora are imagining into reality in pursuit of brighter, blacker futures.
