Greetings Dieselfunkateers! BLACK ENTERPRISE ON AFROFUTURISM! It’s so fascinating to see the world we are in now. Where visuals that depict people of color within speculative scenarios are now mainstream. AFROFUTURISM is now MAINSTREAM.
The Black Panther has now crossed 1 Billion Dollars worldwide and continues on. Wrinkle In Time is out doing good business as well. This is all due to the contemporary media state where the demand for content morbidly outstrips the content supply. As a result, media companies, whether they be traditional or new, are all in the CONTENT WAR. This means subject matter that never would have even been considered before is now MAINSTREAM.
I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by BLACK ENTERPRISE MAGAZINE on the subject of Afrofuturism. I was asked to come in and speak on the subject of Afrofuturism. HUGE pleasure to work with Bigwig Samara Lynn, Media Maven Selena Hill, and special acknowledgement to Sharon Wynne. I had a Blast! Check it out HERE or click BELOW
