February is Black History Month

Black History Month 2020 posterThis year, UW-Madison will celebrate the theme of Afrofuturism: B(l)ack to the Future by presenting a cohesive set of programming designed to educate, celebrate, and support the imagination of Black existence in 2020 and the years to come.

Afrofuturism is the (re)imagining of the future for Black people through various mediums such as the arts, media, and literature. While Afrofuturism’s origins stem from the erasure of African traditions and identity from the science fiction genre, its reach is far more expansive. It’s a cultural movement that uses the future as a way to (re)imagine the realities and possibilities for those part of the African diaspora.
