Description

Join an exploration of a vision of the future in which people of African descent not only have a place in, but are synonymous with, the progress and advancement of the human race.

Bi-monthly discussions on Thursdays at 7p, Nov 29th - Feb 14th.

Art show opening, inspired by the same topic, on Feb 22nd at 7p.



Imagine a vision of the future in which the stains of our collective past do not paint the present. Imagine a culture unencumbered by the weight of oppressive structures meant to divide and suppress. Imagine a society in which people of color, the African diaspora, are not tokenized or seen as “other”. Imagine what the world would look like with African cultural and philosophical foundations shaping the evolution of global civilization in their fullness. This is a vision of Afrofuturism. A vision of the future in which people of African descent not only have a place in but are synonymous with the progress and advancement of the human race. Through art, science, philosophy, and exploration they lead our world forward. It is in this vision we wish to explore what the contributions of the entire body of the human race can yield. It is in this vision that we ask you to create.
