Inner & Outer Spaces: Community Organizing and Social Justice – Ferguson is the Future

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? “Ferguson is the Future” is part of an ongoing collaboration to imagine and create alternative worlds that are more just and representative of humanity.

Octavia’s Brood, adrienne maree brown and Walidah Imarisha
