It's Going Down

At the End of the World: Afrofuturism, Black Speculative Futures, and Black Transhumanism

On this episode of the It’s Going Down, IGD contributor Scott Campbell speaks with Clay Colmon, who teaches in the Cultural Studies Department at Claremont Graduate University and is the Associate Director of Instructional Design at UPenn’s School of Arts and Sciences.

The two discuss the potential and meaning of change, the growing capaciousness of Afrofuturism, the power of Black speculative futures, the significance of vision and story in social struggle, the construction of the human, the possibilities of Black transhumanism and posthumanism, and the implications of all of the above in the work for liberatory social change.
