Any Afrofuturists in the building? Anyone in the building wondering what Afrofuturism is?
On this week’s installment of Practically Speaking, we revisit Afrofuturism with artist and educator D. Denenge Akpem. Afrofuturism is a cultural movement that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, and Afrocentricity, in order to critique present-day dilemmas of people of color. It also tries to remix and re-examine the historical events of the past.
We also hear from avant-garde musician and composer David Boykin about the new cultural movement.
Plus, host Audra Wilson profiles visionary Science Fiction author Octavia Butler.
Tune in this Friday at 11am on http://vocalo.org 89.5fm (NWIndy) and 90.7fm (CHI).
