Virtual: Afrofuturism: A Global Celebration with Sheree Renée Thomas
Wednesday, November 2, 2022
Come learn more about the exciting innovations and new creations in Afrofuturism, a global artistic and social movement, that uses the creative arts, science, technology, and philosophy to imagine—and create— future worlds where African-descended peoples and cultures can live and thrive.
Mrs. Thomas has been a major contributor to the Afrofuturism genre for the past three decades and sees the work as a vibrant space for collaboration and exploration. Mrs. Thomas' books include: Black Panther: Panther's Rage, Africa Risen: A New Era of Speculative Fiction, and Nine Bar Blues. She also contributed to Janelle Monáe's The Memory Librarian.
