CityLit Stage

With so much emphasis on the Black body - police brutality, dense photographical explorations of the inner city, stories of reformed criminals, death and loss within plot lines of Empire inundating American culture, the exploration of Black consciousness, and the navigation of the Black perception of life has been nearly nonexistent in media. Authors Olu Butterfly, Jordannah Elizabeth, Jason Harris, and Kaila Philo speak about Black consciousness and existentialism in writing, and how it lends itself to dystopian stories and plot lines in Afrofuturism.
