Summary
"Explores afrofuturism as a narrative practice by applying it to canonical African American literary texts by Wheatley, Walker, Douglass, Jacobs, Delany, Hopkins, Hurston, and Wright; trans-historically rereads the texts as science fiction and argues that the black experience of spatial and temporal dislocation in America is akin to science fiction"--
