Reading Our Futures: a Black Futurist Bookclub by Brooke Bosley, PhD

May 27 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

LOVING ROOM: diaspora books + salon is thrilled to welcome Brooke Bosley, PhD for Reading Our Futures, Healing Present & Past, a monthly Afrofuturist, africanfuturist, africanjujuist, Black speculative fiction, sci-fi & fantasy bookclub!

Black futurist literary lieux compel us to engage in generative dialogue and reflection about the substance of our living as Black folks– to dream our futures, in light of the complexities of our pasts and present. We highlight and even venerate the ancestral, as we grieve the layers of suffering that have been inflicted– the dystopias of Diaspora dealings– and imagine futures unfettered. We consider the possibilities, implications and ethical considerations of modern technologies and trends in design. Literally, and literarily, what do our (liberated) Black futures comprise?
