Afrofuturism & The Underground Railroad

Snow date from original date of February 28.

This lecture employs the lens of Afrofuturism to address new dimensions of the Underground Railroad, detailing what imagination, tact, and technology, it took for fugitive Blacks to flee to the "outer spaces of slavery."  The talk addresses the intersections of race, technology, and liberation by retroactively applying a modern concept to dynamic historical Black moments.
