First coined in 1993 by the cultural critic Mark Derry, afrofuturism refers to a literary and artistic mode of reimagining Black history and culture—and possible futures—through the lens of science fiction and fantasy. Black artists in many disciplines, including music, dance, painting, and literature, use afrofuturism to recover the past, understand the present, and envision a future on their own terms.
