This is a preliminary list of critical articles about or related to afrofuturism.  At the moment it’s simply alphabetical, but I’m working on a bibliography plugin that will allow me to categorize the listings in a more useful order, and also to annotate them.  Many citations are still missing (perhaps to your own work!) so feel free to email me at “ at gmail dot com” and let me know what I should add.
