Black to the Afrofutur

Parisian crew Mawimbi invites us for a Rinse France radio show this monday 3th april at 2pm (CET). Subject: Afrofuturism.

 

“Afrofuturism explores the future in a black context, incorporating technology and fantasy to provide an escape from the oppressive past and ailments of the present through music, visual art, and literature.” Daja Henry
