Afrofuturism at the Art Sanctuary’s 30th Annual Celebration of Black Writing!
The AfroFuturist Affair is honored to present “Afrofuturism and Do-It-Yourself Time Travel" workshop at the Literary Arts Conference and Workshops as part of the month-long Celebration of Black Writing! Other workshops and panels will explore thought provoking questions on literary art forms, writing, publishing, the role of black writing in society, and more.
Join us on Saturday, May 10th from 10am-3pm at Temple University for a workshop that explores afrofuturism, time travel, quantum physics, and ancient African traditions of time, all framed by the narrative in Octavia Butler’s novel “Kindred.” The Literary Conference is free, but you must register here.
At part 2 of the Literary Arts Conference at University of the Arts on May 17, 2014, there will be a film screening and presentation of Last Man Standing, a short experimental documentary by Stan West that showcases the leader of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Marshall Allen who will be 90 this month.
