Millions of people learned the term Afrofuturism when Black Panther became a box office sensation. However, this ain't new. Sun Ra, Parliment Funkadelic, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Octavia E. Butler, and Samuel R. Delany created a foundation that inspired musicians, artists, and writers like Janelle Monae, Nisi Shawl, Nalo Hopkinson, Kyle Yearwood and others long before Ryan Coogler brought T'Challa to the big screen. Let's discuss the roots of Afrofuturism and who is creating the most interesting works today.
