Noughts + Crosses: Why You Should Watch This Afrofuturist Alternate History Romance

“First published in the UK in 2001, and in the U.S. in 2005, Noughts & Crosses tells the story of a dystopian alternate reality version of the U.K. (here, called Albion). In the Noughts & Crosses universe, people of African descent are called ‘Crosses’ and people of European descent are called ‘Noughts.’ The Crosses control the government and use the legal and economic system to oppress the Noughts. The main character of the novel series is Sephy Hadley (Masali Baduza, in the series), a Cross who is in a relationship with Callum McGregor (Jack Rowan), a Nought. Through this relationship, she begins to realize that the society she lives in is hell for those who don’t look like her. The story continues across five books, as the characters fight to end the institutionalized racism in Albion.”

A government controlled by people of African descent that oppresses people of European descent? Interesting concept, but is that what you as an Afrofuturist envision for this planet? Worth a discussion, I’d say.
