Anyone that watched Marvel’s Black Panther would agree that the movie has a striking aesthetic. Not only was it the first superhero movie to feature a black superhero and a predominately black cast, but it also weaved african culture in a science fiction world.

Black Panther is an example of a subgenre called Afrofuturism. Afrofuturism as described by is, a cultural aesthetic that combines science-fiction, history and fantasy to explore the African-American experience and aims to connect those from the black diaspora with their forgotten African ancestry.”

As I aim to broaden my perspectives and diversify my content diet, afrofuturistism looks like an interesting genre to explore.
