  • afrofuturisms many (mis)identifications

    Many Afrofuturist authors are described as sci-fi and Afro-surrealist, magical realist and fantasy, simply because their work links science, nature, and magic as one. Ytasha L. Womack, Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture (2013)
