Welcome, Time Travelers.


This is a framework for a proposed graduate course at Florida State University, using the construct of Afrofuturism to consider how African American literacies now and in the past extend into the speculative future. To understand literacies in this course, we will focus heavily on the lenses of time, culture, and technology.

Afrofuturism is emerging:

What is Afrofuturism? (Ebony, 2013)

Media Diversified Series on Afrofuturism

George Clinton, Sun Ra, and the Sci-Fi Funk of Afrofuturism (The Artery, 2014) 

Afrofutures Magazine 


Black literacies, technologies and cultures in future time
