At Narazu, we’re always trying to look at the world a little differently (and hopefully challenge you to do the same). There are incredible resources online and at your local library for learning about the past and present contributions of African-Americans in the US during Black History Month, so for our February issue, we decided to look ahead and introduce you to an incredible genre of storytelling known as Afrofuturism.
What is Afrofuturism? Afrofuturism is speculative fiction written about and/or inspired by African culture, history, mythology, or experience. Most importantly, Afrofuturist stories feature people of African descent (or people of color) as main protagonists. Celebrated authors like Octavia Bulter, Samuel Delany, and Charles Saunders were pioneers in this genre and there are MANY indie creators who are carrying their vision of diverse literature into the future. We’re proud to feature just a few of them here. Check out the goods below and happy reading!
All indie. All Awesome
