On Black Futures looks for those other modes of being in the world – geographically, aesthetically, temporally, speculatively – that expand how we understand blackness in relation to futurity and the fantastic as fundamental to black thought and black being.

On Black Futures is a two day symposium held on February 3-4, 2017 and hosted by The Graduate Certificate Students in the Department of African & African American Studies at Duke University. A full description of the symposium and presenters is available here.
