New "Afrofantastic" Exhibit on Futurism in Art, Literature and Technology
- On display at AARLCC from June until December 2023 -

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Peer into the future with the new, free exhibit Afrofantastic - The Black Imaginary in Art, Literature, and Technology on display from June 22 to December 31, 2023 at the Broward County African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), 2650 Sistrunk Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311, 954-357-6282.

Using technology and graphic art, this unique exhibit features "Afrofuturism," which is the vision of the Black imagination to see new paths, imagine different worlds, envision Black people of the future and recreate images of the past. The exhibit and its supporting programs explore issues of representation, empowerment, science, science fiction, technology and race.

"It is exciting to see the channels through which the Black imagination expresses itself in search of identity and possibility," said AARLCC's Dr. Tameka Bradley Hobbs. "I am delighted to open up that line of inquiry to visitors of the exhibit, along with discussions of the Black presence in art, technology and literature of a future time waiting to be realized."

The internationally recognized curators of the exhibit are Dr. Julian C. Chambliss, Professor of English at Michigan State University; Chris Clark, self-taught visual artist, illustrator and muralist; and Dr. Tameka Bradley Hobbs, author and Library Regional Manager of AARLCC. 

Sponsorship is provided by the Broward Public Library Foundation and the Friends of AARLCC. For additional information, please contact Sheena Sewell at or 954-357-5979.
