Afrofuturism Black Scientists & Science Fiction

February 27 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Afrofuturism—the merging of Black history and culture with science fiction, science, technology and art—is the theme for Nauticus’ Black History Month celebration taking place from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 27.
A variety of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) based activities, crafts, and programs will be presented inside Nauticus and on the Battleship Wisconsin. Included in Nauticus General Admission tickets – purchase tickets here.
Afrofuturism is a concept that was coined by Mark Dery in 1993 and exemplified in movies such as Black Panther and The Wiz.
Afrofuturism is a creative genre that addresses inequity and environmental stewardship very clearly while also inspiring and empowering the scientists and change makers who could build a better future. Join us to celebrate all the amazing Afrofuturism creators who have dared us to dream bigger and the Black environmental and sustainable scientists who were inspired by them!
