AfroFuturism Festival: Black Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror and Gaming

What is AfroFuturism?

AfroFuturism takes you on a journey for self-discovery and engages the spiritual senses.

Nigerian Artist Ytasha Womack, author of "Afrofuturism: the World of Black Sci-Fi Fantasy and Fantasy Culture," explains that, to her, Afrofuturism offers a “highly intersectional” way of looking at possible futures or alternate realities through a black cultural lens. It is non-linear, fluid and uses the black imagination to consider mysticism, metaphysics, identity and liberation; and, despite offering black folks a way to see ourselves in a better future, Afrofuturism blends the future, the past and the present.

AfroFuturism -- Black sci-fi, horror and fantasy -- is a movement that the Urban Mediamakers organization has joined. A consortium of content creators who use new technology to create a multitude of interactive projects, the organization gives urban creatives an opportunity to showcase their artistry as they tell stories of their communities, compete with peers, hone their skills through educational series and interact with public supporters of media excellence. The Urban Mediamakers bring a mixed bag of media projects representing AfroFuturism.

You are invited to be a part of the 5th annual AfroFuturism Festival celebrating Black sci-fi, fantasy, horror through art, films, books, comics and gaming. Featuring virtual and in-person events.
