Beyond Representation
Sunday in Room 102A
12:00 PM  to  1:00 PM

A panel of Black mental health professionals discuss the ways in which Afrofuturism can foster creativity and empowerment in Black youth. Afrofuturism offers them the space to imagine a world that centers them, rather than having to be a side story in a world that is, at best, benignly neglectful of their experiences. At worst, downright hostile.

We will discuss some of the positive impacts Afrofuturism can have on the collective mental health of Black kids.
