When Black Reproductive Justice meets Afrofuturism

Afrofuturism - is a literary and cultural aesthetic that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magic realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the present-day dilemmas of people of color, but also to revise, interrogate, and re-examine the historical events of the past.

Black Women for Wellness is examining our past & present, to shape a future that is bright and welcoming to Black women & girls, we are assessing our tool chest (media/policy/direct action/education/program services and leadership development) to determine our strategies and gather our resources to shift and lift our work ahead.
