“Afrofuturism, for me, is about speculating on the potentiality of what is known about technology and physics to create metaphors that allow me to explore an African diasporic past and generate possible narratives for the future...Afrofuturism is also a rumination on memories to which I have no access. My investment in it as a production strategy has run its course; Afrofuturism provides a way to investigate trauma very explicitly.”
—Cauleen Smith

Cauleen Smith’s long engagement with Afrofuturistic aesthetics is explored in this program, which includes Songs for Earth and Folk, The Green Dress, T Minus Two, The Changing Same, The Name You Trust In Good Clean Family Fun, Sine at the Canyon & Sine at the Sea (credited as Kelly Gabron), Not The Black, White Suit, and Chronicles of a Lying Spirit (credited as Kelly Gabron).
