Afrofuturism is a movement of art, culture and literature that seeks to explore dilemmas faced by black people and theorize possible futures. Afrofuturism will be our framework to re-examine events of the past, critique the present day dilemmas of the African Diaspora, and create a space to imagine and dream of possible futures.
Join us for the Second Friday of each month from 6 to 8pm. As always, there will be food, music and celebration of community.
