Making Contact

From Black Pan­ther and A Wrin­kle in Time to Janelle Mon­ae and Erykah Badu, Afro­fu­tur­ism is gain­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty. Film­mak­er and author Ytasha Wom­ack more defines Afro­fu­tur­ism as the inter­sec­tion between black cul­ture, tech­nol­o­gy, lib­er­a­tion and the imag­i­na­tion, with some mys­ti­cism thrown in, too,”

On this episode of Mak­ing Con­tact, authors Nalo Hop­kin­son, Nne­di Oko­rafor, and Jew­elle Gomez dis­cuss the role of his­to­ry and pol­i­tics in their work. They also talk about the mon­sters that haunt their sto­ries and the impor­tance of imag­ing the future.
