About this submission

The video gives insight into an Afrofuturist possibility on the sliding spectrum of Afropessimism to Afrofuturism. Afropessimism acknowledges the reality of the lasting effects of colonialism and imperialism concerning folks of African Diaspora. Afrofuturism is experienced through people of African descent being and existing in spaces and identities they were erased from or not imagined in. We see visual speculation of an Afrofuturist 'being' interacting in the world we have imagined, which allows for Blackness to be expansive rather than confined. The 'being' explores the landscape of the present as ruins of the past and exists in alignment with nature.
