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.

Kodwo Eshun Interview (1999)

“In this interview from 1999(!) Kodwo Eshun is talking about ‘ocean of sound’, the constant anxiety created by musical oversupply and people’s resulting need for a grand narrative to fixate on. And today? Ten Million songs practically unheard! Looks like grand narrative is pretty much still in effect. But then: 13 million songs. This ain’t no mere post-scarcity no more, this is a massive expanding ocean of noise. Waiting to be explored. Waiting for everyone to drown in?”
