Sci-fi and Afrofuturism

‘Afrofuturism is an intersection of imagination, technology, the future and liberation. “I generally define Afrofuturism as a way of imagining possible futures through a black cultural lens’” says Ingrid LaFleur, an art curator and Afrofuturist. LaFleur presented for the independently organized TEDx Fort Greene Salon in Brooklyn, New York. “I see Afrofuturism as a way to encourage experimentation, reimagine identities, and activate liberation.”’ – Y Womack, Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture
