Black Futures Month is a visionary, forward-looking spin on celebrations of Blackness in February.
The Movement for Black Lives is using this time to both consider and celebrate our Black radical history and to dream and imagine a world in which we are free and self-determined.
This Black Futures Month M4BL will uplift artists, creators, and organizers telling stories we have yet to hear — stories that will unlock our future.
To kick off M4BLs month-long celebration, we are releasing a short Afrofuturist film produced in partnership with Root Story Films that imagines a future when all Black people will be free:
Free to Dream; Free to Flourish; Free to Be.
