Afrocentric-futurism: ‘Black Panther’ as a Sankofa Visualization

November 29, 2018
Location: Mullen Building, Little Theatre

Noon until 1:00 p.m.

Ursuline College Faculty Diversity Fellow Abobo Kumbalonah, PhD, presents a colloquium titled “Afrocentric-futurism: ‘Black Panther’ as a Sankofa Visualization” on Thursday, Nov. 29, in Ursuline’s Mullen Building. The talk is free and open to the public.

Kumbalonah‘s talk will examine “Black Panther,” the most successful Hollywood movie on Africa, looking at how the African (Akan) cultural motif of Sankofa could be used to situate the film between Afrocentricity and Afrofuturism. The talk will evaluate how that combination provides an alternative visual imagination of Africa within Euro-American cinescapes.
