This is my first time submitting something here, and I am not sure what all needs to be included, so please leave comments for suggestions! I tried to follow the format for some of the other suggestions that have been submitted here before. The books that I have seen about Afrofuturism only have vague subject headings like “Science fiction $x Social aspects” and “African Americans $x Race identity” which really don’t cut it.

550 __ $w g $a Science fiction

670 __ Work cat: 854285645: Womack, Ytasha L. Afrofuturism : the world of black sci-fi and fantasy culture, 2013.

670 __ 932003493: Afrofuturism 2.0 : the rise of astro-blackness, 2016.
