DJ & concert of afrofuturist bands & techno-utopian narratives - Mother Cyborg, The Afronauts, et al:

The Aural Futures series looked at how electronic music created a foundation in the development of Afrofuturism, how music movements like Afropunk have introduced Afrofuturism to a larger audience, and how the Afrofuturist aesthetic visually expresses the music & provides a narrative. To complete the music ecosystem, they have curated a selection of storytellers & performers from Detroit & Durham to create an Afrofuturist evening of musical vibes & visions tonight in Duke's Coffee House. Hearing the music, watching the performance & the organic movement that it calls forth is an integral part of the Afrofuturist experience.

-- Mother Cyborg cares about the future of technology and all the ways in which it can shape relationships. The dance floor is where she heals and summons community... She proudly identifies as a global team member of the resistance.

-- The Afronauts is an afrofuturist youth group in Durham that is putting out a mixtape via Pierce Freelon's Blackspace this year.
