Dark Matter: A History of the Afrofuture
9pm, BBC Four
Writer Ekow Eshun, artist Hew Locke, curator Elvira Dyangani Ose and other black diaspora thinkers provide a communal narrative for this fascinating film, explaining the history of the cultural movement of afrofuturism. From Turner’s battle of commerce versus humanity in The Slave Ship to Drexciya’s techno utopias, we trace how the trauma of slavery and racism translated into an imagined othering of black existence – a fertile space for new creation.
