Black to the Afro-Futurism

Mark Dery’s “Black to the Future” addresses the racial ignorance present in sci-fi as it’s writers routinely address social problems but can’t see race while creating aliens. Dery provides “afro-futurism” as an allegorical response to this form of sci-fi. Afro-futurism is defined as science-fiction writers considering African-American themes and issues in the realm of technoculture as a realm influenced by technology in politics and social institutions.
