What futures do we imagine for Chicago’s South Side? Featuring youth participants in the Transmedia Collage program and guest scholars, this panel will ask how Afrofuturism can serve as a time-bending model for redefining what tomorrow may bring. We will explore how sci-fi and speculative fiction enables us to foster social change, reexamine hierarchies of race, and enable forms of self-expression for people of color.

Guest speaker: Ytasha Womack, producer, director, and author of Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi & Fantasy Culture
