“On November 19th, 2020, scholars in the field of Afrofuturism and Black Utopia gathered for a virtual conversation about the role of Black Utopian thought within African American history, and its importance for our current inflection point on race relations. The panel was organized and facilitated by Dr. Victoria W. Wolcott, Professor of History at the University of Buffalo and was presented by the UB Humanities Institute in conjunction with Humanities New York (Buffalo Humanities Festival: Utopia digital programming for 2020-2021). Dr. Wolcott is the author of a forthcoming publication, Living in the Future: Utopianism and the Long Civil Rights Movement (forthcoming, University of Chicago Press). The other panelists were, Julian C. Chambliss, Michigan State University, John Jennings, University of California, Riverside and Alex Zamalin, University of Detroit, Mercy.”
