The Ferguson is the Future symposium brought together scholars, activists and artists and asked: what stories about power, difference, and belonging fuel the social crises we face today? How does visionary fiction offer us models for creating new possible worlds? Can the combined insights and interventions of artists, activists, and scholars plot a different course forward? The symposium, part of an ongoing collaboration called Black to the Future, served as a space to imagine and create alternative worlds that are more just and representative of humanity.
