Black History Month is often described as a time to look back on all the people who shaped our history as a country, but this month we propose a different take. All those who blaze a path, do so for the future. The real-life heroes and heroines of Black History Month were visionaries who refused to settle into the malaise of “what is”. They shaped their formidable wills and imaginations into swords of destiny – visions bigger and brighter than what had ever existed before – and used it to create the future we live in now. They invented it just as surely as the ground we stand on today – a future big enough for all our doubts and all our dreams. But in this ever-expanding universe, more is required to build the utopia we deserve.
This month’s issue pays homage to those great inventors of society and challenges us to carry the dream forward, to take up the torch they have passed on, mold it into the cyber blaster of today, then cast it out into the better day known as tomorrow – because we will create it.
All Indie. All Awesome.
