Long before anyone had given it a name, artists such as Sun Ra, Lee Perry and George Clinton already represented the first effervescence of Afrofuturism. Combining music and science fiction, their creations forced fantasy to fall within the bounds of reality. The connections and perspectives of Afrofuturism extend in time and space, cross disciplines and specialties, and are both deeply rooted and constantly renewed. Although it is necessary to expound on the proposed definitions of the term, our main focus here will be on its application and exemplification. The objective here is not to define fixed contours or to measure the extent of the multiple ramifications embodied in the afrofuturistic discourses, but rather to provide some examples of what it can generate in terms of creation. This talk will explore Afrofuturism as a process of meaning creation in arts, a process of appropriation, combination, and disorientation that opens up new spaces for imagination and creativity. ‘Afrofuturism is an exploration and methodology of liberation, simultaneously both a location and a journey.’
