The Observable Universe by Education Curator Dr. Synatra Smith

Reimagine time and space through technology and fantasy!

The Observable Universe is an interactive discussion of Afrofuturist films throughout the Diaspora from the 1970s to the present.

We explore such films as Touki Bouki, Space Is the Place, and City of God.

Share, engage, and be inspired to create your own Afrofuturist observable universe!
