The AfroFuturist Affair is a community formed to celebrate, strengthen, and promote Afrofuturistic and Black Scifi culture through creative events and creative writing.
The Afrofuturist Affair has a correlative mission of using the proceeds from our events to fund a $500 community grant. The grant, known as The Futurist Fund will be dedicated to serving the needs of members of an under-served community annually.

The AfroFuturist Affair tumblr provides friends, supporters, historians, and aliens with archives on the first event, updates on Afro-future events, present goings-ons, and to exchange language, images, memories, notes, and energies with other Futurists across cyberspace/time. We practice and revere Ancient Wisdom, Mythology, Liberation, History, Future, Metaphysics, Sacred Math, Prophecy, Science, Trippy, Music, Gods, Art. Anything that one could use as a tool to survive yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Zanele Muholi | Interview 

Artist and activist Zanele Muholi discusses her documentary Difficult Love (2011) and her aim to disrupt the victimising discourse around black lesbians in South Africa. While she affirms the continued importance of speaking about hate crime and ‘corrective/curative’ rape, her film gestures towards a more capacious conversation, one that makes it possible to apprehend ’black lesbians and their families, black lesbians and their children, black lesbians and education, black lesbians taking over the movement … using the art as their means.’

Difficult Love is a magnificent film. Watch it here.
