In the late 1990s, I remember attending a panel discussion of African-American SF authors at Robert W. Woodruff Library in the Atlanta University Center. The panel included my favorites like Octavia Butler and Brandon Massey. It was the first time that I’d ever participated in an event that highlighted a variety of African-American authors in SF. I was elated.
My husband and I visited the Riffing on the Real: Afro-Futurism in the Arts Exhibit at the Tubman African-American Museum in Macon, Georgia. It was an easy drive from metro Atlanta to Macon. The exhibit was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The subject of Afro-futurism encompassed various motifs like sci fi, fantasy, futurism, comics as well as other art and artifacts from African masks to contemporary or visionary art. It was a true sci fi experience.
