In a previous post I’ve drawn attention to October is Black Speculative Fiction Month, and Afrofutrism. Now I am pleased to present an interview with Ytasha L. Womack, author of Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture (Lawrence Hill Books, 2013). Womack defines Afrofutrism by citing Ingrid LaFleur “as a way of imagining possible futures through a black cultural lens.” Further, “Afrofuturism combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, speculative fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magical realism with non-Western beliefs.”
