Third Thursday: Afrofuturism

Afrofuturism isn’t just about the future – Afrofuturism recognizes how Black art, technology, literature, music and film manifests the future today from the African continent and the diaspora. Join us for a FREE evening of art-making, poetry, music, and dance celebrating the multiplicity of Blackness across space and time.
