Friday and Saturday, October 20 & 21, 2017
The Wyndham Historic District
The African world is thriving in spite of bearing witness to dystopic and threatening political, social, and cultural change and upheaval. Society is responding to reassertions of supremacist thought, ethos, insanity, and regression, and there is a caution to avoid a pessimist trap. In challenging chronophobia, known as a fear of the future, African people continue to maintain and pursue not only optimum liberation but also a technological awareness updated from past ingenuity to present creative consciousness.
