Photo gallery ‘Afrofuturism’ comes to campus
More than 50 students kicked off Black History Month at an event called “An Afrofuturistic Affair,” at the Pyle Center’s Alumni Lounge at the University of Wisconsin–Madison on Friday, Feb. 7. The evening included dinner, music and a photo booth and was co-sponsored by the UW–Madison Black Cultural Center, UW–Madison’s Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement and the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association. Afrofuturism, the theme of Black History Month on campus, is the (re)imagining of the future for Black people through various mediums such as the arts, media, and literature.
