This semester we will primarily explore Afrofuturism - a movement and philosophy that uplifts and celebrates spiritualities, technologies, and arts and culture of African Diaspora communities to re-imagine and create radically new worlds - and its African-based articulations of Africanfuturism or Africanjujuism, taking examples from fiction, creative nonfiction, film, the visual and theatrical or performing arts, and Black anthropologies of art and religion. This background will inform and support our work to help develop an exhibit and series of performance events around Afrofuturism with the Seacoast African American Cultural Center (SAACC), Green Acre Bahá’í and other regional arts and culture organizations.
