This session will be a guided discussion on Black Panther and Afrofuturism. Afrofuturism is a genre that often bends time and space, merging both African ancestral history and future possibility with the spiritual. Marvel's Black Panther movie is an example of Afrofuturism in pop-culture.

In preparation for the discussion, please watch the Black Panther movie that is being shown 1/30-2/2 virtually with Campus Cinema or in-person at 7 p.m. on 1/30 in Jamrich 1100.

The discussion will be led by Dr. Leah Milne, of the University of Indianapolis, in concert with Dr. Lesley Larkin's course on Modern African American Literature.
