From Negro Pasts to Afro-Futures: Black Creative Re-Imaginings
The emergence of Afro-futurism as a relatively new construct in Africana Studies and Black History allows the Library Company of Philadelphia to pay homage to black past and show how black historical artists envisioned a glorious black future. By displaying fragments of early Black Americans’ past from their drawings, love letters, poems, songs, speeches, and protests, this exhibition will help visitors grapple with the place of black creative genius in the quest for a people’s liberation.
This exhibition is supported by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and The National Endowment for the Humanities.
