Afrofuturism

From Wikipedia....Afrofuturism is an emergent literary and cultural aesthetic that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magic realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the present-day dilemmas of people of color, but also to revise, interrogate, and re-examine the historical events of the past.

Please do not include sequels.

Sheryl Carkhum-Lord Interesting list; I only recognize Octavia Butler.
I'm surprised to see Ralph Ellison's book on this list.
I wouldn't know were to start.


message 3: by Sheryl (new)

Sheryl Carkhum-Lord Great list. I just saw a nice exhibit called The "Alchemy of the Black Imagination - Unveiling Visions" at the Schomburg Center for Black Culture in NYC. Some of these books were featured along with some Afrofuturism art. If you are a New Yorker and love this genre you will like this.


message 4: by Candiss (new)

Candiss This is a great list. I added the few that weren't already listed here from this article/list:

Defining the Genre: 7 Novels of Afrofuturism.
