Afro-Futurism: Envisioning the Year 2070 and Beyond uses art to create a future for us to aspire to. It comes from an African American perspective. Runaway slave and heroine Harriet Tubman once said, "I freed a thousand slaves; I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves."
Over 100 years later, writer James Baldwin praised Black revolutionaries for daring to break down barriers. He wrote in a 1970 letter to activist Angela Davis: "The enormous revolution in black consciousness which has occurred in your generation, my dear sister, means the beginning or the end of America. Some of us, white and Black, know how great a price has been paid to bring into existence a new consciousness, a new people, an unprecedented nation."
What will be the Black consciousness in the year 2070, one hundred years after James Baldwin's letter?
