Dr. LaWana on Afrofuturism
Afrofuturism uses history as well as the present to inform visions of the future (as well as the past and the present) that encourage us to reverse engineer our way toward actions that lead us most closely to desired future states.
I am so passionate about Afrofuturism because I see it as a way forward for us all.
I see Afrofuturism as inclusive futurism.
September 9th and 10th
@ San Diego Jackie Robinson Family YMCA
Come meet and learn from comic universe builders, animation industry professionals as well as visionaries who are working every day to make the world better for us today and in the future.
We will be visited by local heroes and visionaries as well as special guests from near and far.
Come purchase collectibles and refresh yourself with food and beverages from local vendors.
This is a celebration of art, culture, and community along with a few calls to action if you are up for the challenge.
