Summary
"The ideas and practices related to afrofuturism have existed for most of the 20th century, especially in the North American-African diaspora community. After Mark Dery coined the word 'afrofuturism' in 1993, Alondra Nelson--as a member of an online forum--along with other participants, began to explore the initial terrain and intellectual underpinnings of the concept noting that '[a]frofuturism has emerged as a term of convenience to describe analysis, criticism, and cultural production that addresses the intersections between race and technology.' Afrofuturism 2.0: The Rise of Astro-Blackness represents a transition from previous ideas related to afrofuturism that were formed in the late 20th century around issues of the digital divide, music, and literature. Afrofuturism 2.0 expands and broadens the discussion around the concept to include religion, architecture, communications, visual art, and philosophy and reflects its current growth as an emerging global Pan African creative phenomenon"--
