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.

This idea of tap dancing and the idea of audio-visual rhythm that is being played out in tap dancing reminded me of the way in which sustained exposure to drum ‘n’ bass and jungle in the mid-90s effectively attuned you to all kinds of rhythmic psychedelia, such that you started searching for rhythmic psychedelias wherever you found them, and eventually you could stumble on tap dancing as a form of controlled experimentation with the stretching and collapsing, the contracting and the distension of time.
