Why Urban Afro-Futurism?

urbanafrofuturism:

This started out rambling thoughts on my thoughts on Afro-Futurism. What it’s become is a long rambling essay/poem (!) on my worldview, my religious thoughts, and what I think of humanity and existence in general.

Moving deliberately in your environments and sticking up for yourself and others, becoming a constant advocate for treating all people fairly, opening up tough spaces for dialogue as a result of your openness - that’s bravery.

Being a trailblazer isn’t new territory for Lady Gaga.

She rocks black gowns and veils in the most rural of places.

In fact, that’s what she wore as took the stage at Harvard on February 29th at 4pm.

But the story starts before that.
