Poetry In The Park + GOASI: Afrofuturism: Reimagining Your People
Poetry in the Park returns to the waterfront in Afrofuturism: Reimagining Your People.
Afrofuturism is a cultural aesthetic that combines science-fiction, history, and fantasy to explore the African-American experience and aims to connect those from the black diaspora with their forgotten African ancestry.
Presented in collaboration with GOASI, come dressed as your favorite Afrofuturism icons.
