Never miss a show! @ symbol icon Email Signup Spotify Logo Spotify RSS Feed Apple Podcasts


According to Ytasha Womack, use of the imagination for self-development and social change is one of the greatest tenets of Afrofuturism. This show features Womack’s presentation at the 2017 Sonic Acts Festival, Afrofuturism: Imagination and Humanity. She explores resilience encouraged through the championing of the imagination, tensions that arise from embracing hope, the separation of humanity from itself through the creation of the technology called race, and the power of storytelling.

Womack is author of the award winning book, Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi & Fantasy Culture.
