Ta-Nehisi Coates is talking on the subject of “Afrofutures”. What’s Afrofutures, you might ask?
From the BMA Today: “The cultural movement (afrofuturism) envisions alternative futures and new possibilities unapologetically root in black culture and technology. The event includes music by Ancestral Duo and DJTrillnatured…(etc.), and community conversation.” Coates will discuss his work on the “Black Panther” comic series and the same-name, recent film.
Doors open at 6pm. The BMA Auditorium seats 250 or 300. I expect there will be overflow into adjacent rooms with TV monitors. To get a good seat, one would have to line up well in advance of door opening. Bring a book or readiness for a conversation while standing (sitting?) on line.
