Afrofuturism, from Wikipedia

Afrofuturism is a cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history that combines elements of science fictionhistorical fictionfantasyAfrocentrism, and magic realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the present-day dilemmas of black people, but also to revise, interrogate, and re-examine the historical events of the past. First coined by Mark Dery in 1993, and explored in the late 1990s through conversations led by scholar Alondra Nelson,[1] Afrofuturism addresses themes and concerns of the African diaspora through a technoculture and science fiction lens, encompassing a range of media and artists with a shared interest in envisioning black futures that stem from Afrodiasporic experiences.[2] Seminal Afrofuturistic works include the novels of Samuel R. Delanyand Octavia Butler; the canvases of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Angelbert Metoyer, and the photography of Renée Cox; the explicitly extraterrestrial mythoi of Parliament-Funkadelic, the Jonzun CrewWarp 9Deltron 3030, and Sun Ra; and the Marvel Comics superhero Black Panther.[3][4][5]


Rammellzee has been called a “vampire eating a bacon double cheeseburger.”

Also, Sam Delaney is luminous when discussing the craft of writing and the role of language. Just saying.
