Title: While it's not something I'd write,
Post by: SarahW on December 07, 2017, 02:54 AM
I was curious what Afrofuturism. I might try to look it up later, but what is the interpretation?

I want to try reading some works, but not sure what it is. Is it basically Science Fiction about the Africana? (Which seems weird, considering the whole South Africa thing.)

Had this genre always exists, it just something that came about recently?

Ah ok, the name gave a totally different impression. This actually sounds kind of interesting. I do like me some magic realism. But the name sounds like, while they meant well, carries some ... unintended baggage.
