Book Description

What does the future look like for Black People? What roles do science fiction, futurism, family and experimentation play as we become more tech savvy while looking for ways to connect with our roots?

Black Futurists Speak is a fun and insightful collection of essays, fiction, poetry and experimental writing that explores culture and community in the future and the present.

The Black Futurist Project is a multimedia literary performance project where forward-thinking artists & theorists are invited to come together to build projects influenced by the realities of black science fiction and the science fiction of black reality. Our mission is to create new, liberating mythologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It, Love It, Want More of It March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank you, thank you, thank you for not doing the same old thang. I love it, I love it, and want more of it! Thank you for different rhythms that still flow deep. "Black Futurists Speak: An Anthology of New Black Writing" is an exhilarating vibration of growing voices not commonly heard. It's great to give a larger platform that reflects the diversity of the hue-man(and maybe other species)mind. Take off your expectations and read the wave of soulful limitless imagination.

Fills a need to have good writing (science fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.) by urban writers where their stories and voices are featured.

4.0 out of 5 stars African Diaspora Renaissance 2013 February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Afro-Futurism, SteamFunk, Sword and Soul, AFRO Sci-Fi, African American Science Fiction and other Afro-centric genres are all elements of the new "African Diaspora Renaissance" -- an Afrocentric artistic revolution is N progress. Like the original Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s, Afro-futurism/Black Futurism is blossoming and changing the way that we speak and read and learn. Anyone interesting in the birth of a new philosophy should acquire this e-book. It is quick and easy to imbibe; and like all anthologies -- some pieces will grab you by the throat, other authors may baffle you with obscurity and wit, but as you dig deeper, your brain may melt in ecstasy or cringe in despair. Black Futurists (Afro Futurists) are becoming a global phenomenon. African diaspora in the USA, Europe, South America and other locales are creating a new black voice via the digital air.

The book was edited well but layout and presentation concerned me -- artists are still experimenting with this new medium; publishers/designers are working out the kinks. I suspect soon that multimedia will be included in all our "literary" works. This would be awesome -- to read the words, hear the music and see the video. I had fun with Black Futurists Speak. I appreciated the effort that was put into it. Seeds have been planted that will grow.
