I mentioned last month that I have been working with the Kheprw Institute on a number of projects. The latest is Afrofuture Fridays. On the second Friday evenings of the month, Afrofuturism will be our framework to re-examine events of the past, critique the present day dilemmas of the African Diaspora, and create a space to imagine and dream of possible futures. Over a shared meal we’ll discuss such things as art (Jean-Michel Basquiat), film (Pumzi), literature (Octavia Butler, Nnedi Okorafor), and music (Parliament-Funkadelic, Sun Ra). 
The series will focus on bringing community residents together to have hard conversations about identity, race, economic models, systems of organization, and justice but one that is rooted in innovation and imagining a hopeful future. From music to film, I’ll be leading discussions centering around various forms of Afrofuturist content as well as invite guest speakers who are authors, artists, and visionaries creating Afrofuturist content. 
Our tagline: We will build a better tomorrow together.
And keep this to yourself, but I’ll be continuing this Afrofuture theme in my life as I’ll be guest editing an Afrofuture issue of Apex Magazine. I already have commitments from some prominent names in Afrofuturism, so look forward to that.
But with things being so hectic, I’m posting a draft chapter of a project that I’m working on.
