#FutureofBlackHistoryMonth is Here at Dark Matters!
Dark Matters is mixing it up a little bit this year for Black History Month. Today through February 29 we’re bringing you a daily moment (or movement) of Afrofuturism for your enjoyment and edification.
Every day at noon, we’ll be posting about that wondrous, futuristic phenomenon of the African Diaspora as expressed in music, lit, visual art, activism, scholarship, essays, film, and more. We’re talking Parliament, Ytasha Womack, Janelle Monáe, Octavia Butler, and of course, Sun Ra in all his shiny glory.
Let us know of any Afrofuturism tidbits you’d like to share!
