Abstract or Description

A new take on Afrofuturism, this book gathers together a range of contemporary voices who, carrying legacies of five hundred years of contact among Africa, Europe, and the Americas, reach toward the stars and unknown planets, galaxies, and ways of being. Writing from queer and feminist perspectives and circumnavigating continents, they recalibrate definitions of Afrofuturism. The editors and contributors of this exciting volume thus reflect on the reemergence of black visions of political and cultural futures, proposing practices, identities, and collectivities.
