Afrofuturism: decolonizing the imagination

“And, as the father of Afrofuturism 2.0 points out himself, every movement has an expiry date. According to him, the second stage has only a few more years to go. A myriad of new trends are emerging, such as African Futurism or Ethno-Futurism, and may well unite under the banner of Afro-Futurism 3.0, with the common feature that they are mainly driven by artists and thinkers from Africa.”

In this article, Nicolas Celnik discusses the past, present, and next generation of the thought, philosophy, and artistic and spiritual expressions of African people in the diaspora as we imagine ourselves healthy and thriving in the near and distant futures. This article makes me wonder what Afrofuturism 3.0 will bring. Perhaps it will bring true African mental liberation enabling us remember our greatness and imagine our true selves into the future.
