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.

I adore Mahogany L. Browne’s work and I’m excited to welcome her to Amsterdam and Rotterdam for RE:Definition. Blessed are the poets who shoot from the hip! If you ever happen to be in the Netherlands and you’re looking for the poet’s Poets… here is where you’ll find them.  

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Simone Zeefuik, creator of RE:Definition, “an Amsterdam based poetry event that connects literature, jazz and Hip hop / one syllable at a time,” giving a platform to both international and local poets. Simone is also co-founder of Soapbox Amsterdam with African Homecoming producer Bamba Nazar. Truly excited to hear about all of the work they are putting in out here, especially with the Black Library.
