AfroFuturism is an aesthetic, philosophical, and visionary framework that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, Afrocentrism, and magical realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the present-day dilemmas of black people, but also to revise, interrogate, and re-examine the historical events of the past. Join us for a conversation with thought leaders working to fashion the guiding principles, strategies, and practices of sustainability to support black diasporic artistic production and systemic social change.

Penumbra’s Let’s Talk Series creates space for compassionate and challenging conversations around issues of social justice, equity, and the arts. Hosted by Sarah Bellamy, the event begins at 6:00pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.
