Black to the Future, A Festival of Art, Social Justice & Dreaming

February 29

Black to the Future, A Festival of Art, Social Justice & Dreaming 

Presented by The Center for African American Poetry & Poetics at the University of Pittsburgh

This event is a reframing of what it means  to celebrate Black History Month. The Festival has an eye toward the relationship between remembering and reimagining; it’s a way to honor the past while simultaneously creating the future we want to live in. With concepts from AfroFuturists in mind, Black to the Future brings together “the imagination, technology, the future, and liberation” via experimentation and a redefinition of culture and blackness itself. Black to the Future focuses on the critical impact of art, poetry, and music in helping to change culture so that what we dream will become reality.

Curated by Yolanda Covington-Ward, Dawn Lundy Martin, and Nicole Mitchell Gantt.
