WE ARE ALL AFROFUTURISTS: A REMINDER

by Kareem Reid (westindians)

“Afrofuturism” might sound like an impenetrable theoretical art term but simply put, it involves the act of re-imagination, reclamation of black identity – a rejection and subversion of debilitating stereotypes, an expression of the infinite ways of interpreting the past, present & future, demonstrating the cosmopolitan reality of the black experience.  

Visually, this usually takes the form of adopting influences from a distant, mythologized African past and ideas of the future (for example, references to outer space or extraterrestrial life) to create something distinctly modern or futuristic. “Afrofuturism” is a way of understanding and creating art that is ultimately about challenging pre-existing modes of perception.

Some great articles / blogs on Afrofuturism:

Salt rivers, flowing out her aqueducts

Vanilla skies on the mahogany, she’s had enough

She misses him

Mid-night day-dream kisses him

Vivid imagery

Her cries, made vocal by the sympathy symphony

There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.
