WHAT IS THE FUTURE HISTORY OF BLACK AMERICA?

 

In Commemoration of Black History Month, the Futures Forum launches SIGNIFYING FUTURES: The Future History of Black America initiative — a Special 4-part Podcast Series on February 5th-28th.

Using the precept of ‘Sankofa Tomorrow’ to practice or preview the future, the initiative engages diverse experts from business to policy to technology to religion to afrofuturism in an exploration of what could be the history of Black America.

 

The goal of ‘SIGNIFYING’ is to begin an exploration of The Future of The American Dream from a Black perspective and to help identify a shared vision and narrative in multi-cultural 21st Century Black America. “We can’t use 1960’s civil rights movement tactics to win the 2060 future” notes Yul Anderson, a Fellow of The Futures Forum Brain Trust, and Founder and President of the African American Future Society.

 
This year’s experts include: Dr. Shariff Abdullah, Founder, Commonway Institute and transformational change advocate; Tavonia Evans, Founder of cryptocurrency $GUAP and economic empowerment evangelist; Marcia Johnson-Blanco, Voting Rights Advocate at the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder, Research Scholar at the the National Center for Women and Information Technology at University of Colorado-Boulder. ;

The series will air online each day at noon on Facebook or thefuturesforum.org.

Wednesday, Feb. 27th – Marcia Johnson-Blanco
Thursday, Feb 28th – Dr. Shariff Abdullah
