copy/paste 192: afrofuturist adventure

the world is on fire. black people are fighting of their lives. it seems like all that anyone can focus on are the images of brutalization, violence, destruction, and death. but it’s important to see this moment within the larger, historical context of black liberation, and one thing that I always notice in this context is that black people have been imagining their futures for a very long time. In art and culture, this often took the form of what has retroactively been dubbed “afrofuturism.” for this episode of copy/paste, I wanted to look back at these musical pioneers, who had the audacity to think big and dream bigger. it’s time for an afrofuturist adventure.
