Event is part of Black Quantum Futurism presents
Community Futurisms: Time & Memory in North Philly 002 - Black Space Agency
Inspired by the legacy of the Fair Housing Act, Civil Rights and Black Liberation movements, and the space race in North Philadelphia during the 1960s, this art exhibition and community programming explores issues of affordable and fair housing, displacement/space/land grabs, and gentrification through the lens of afrofuturism, oral histories/futures, and Black spatial-temporal autonomy.
