Welcome to the New Afrofuturism Site

After eight years of old graphics and mostly static info, I’m updating the site, turning it into a blog, and adding the many bibliographic citations and resources that have collected since the last (long ago) update.  Official opening date for the new site will be May 1, 2010, but you can check on changes daily until that date.

Anyone interested in becoming a writer for the site, contributing graphics, or taking part in building Afrofuturism.net in any other fashion is invited to help.

    Although I’m excited about the evolution of the new site, I’m having a bit of withdrawal from the absence of all the amazing content on the old one! Co-curating a show that deals with many of the ideas articulated on this site-would love to chat with you about that and the revamp…can we talk?

    Great to see this site-now blog-alive and active! Have visited on occasion, having discovered this page a few years ago. Its a pleasant surprise to see these updates. Like to think I’ve found one philosophical home. Would like to contribute my writings sometimes- and meet other activist folk. Is that afrofuturist.net@gmail.com?

    First, I’m writing a book on Andrea Hairston’s sf, and I don’t see any mention here. Would you like me to send my list of her main works, fiction and criticism? Second, I’m looking for some artwork or photograph related to her themes to use as the front cover for the book. It’s an academic book, so the artist/photographer would only receive acknowledgment and a copy of the book. I don’t know how to pass this request on otherwise. Thanks.
