Afro-Futurism

As part of Black History month, Ujima and the Watershed have joined forces to launch Afro-futurism, an empowering season of black films,debates and events to re-define black identity…For your chance to win Afro-futurism tickets tune into the One Love Breakfast and Cruisin shows all throughout Black History month.

A place where space, pyramids, funk and politics collide, Afro-futurism is one of the most imaginative ways of re-defining and re-imagining black identity in the past, present, and the future. From spirituality to hiphop, art, fashion, comics, science and film – you name it, Afro-futurism touches it.

We’ll be taking a closer look at all of these areas, kicking off with a special focus on Sun Ra, the original Afro-naut and free jazz pioneer, in celebration of his centenary, and continuing with invitations to journey into the funkiest musical cosmos, explore your inner superhero, save your block from aliens and join the Mothership. Afrofuturism is a diverse programme, for a diverse audience. Check out the full programme here and get upto get down and discover a world (or indeed worlds)where today’s boundaries blur into insignificance.
