William Jones

Historian, Afrofuturist, Author, Speaker and Educator, William Jones. Afrofuturism is a multi-media cultural genre that wields elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, and even a little magic to address both the real-world issues facing black people in the present day, and to re-examine and offer up a better way to see ourselves in the future, both in fiction and in reality. It encompasses the world of sci-fi and fantasy culture from a black perspective, and encourages a breaking down of current, outdated, and widely accepted paradigms to promote a more fully realized and complex black experience. Afrofuturism is intersectional, and, at its heart, about representation and fighting erasure through a kind of cultural activism.
