Thanks for sharing that lukester420, its special - was there ever a more avant-garde/acquired-taste musician/band than Sun Ra & the Arkestra - Ornette Coleman is commercial by comparison

Who was the first person to set foot on the North Pole - Matthew Henson, a black man

Afrofuturism


Speaking of Afrofuturism (cool word, new to me! thx) - Have a title to recommend: The Broken Earth Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin.

Not black history, but black futurism, well actually human futurism from a black view puts it better - FANFREKINTASTIC. N.K. Jemisin, is making black history - first female black author to earn a Hugo, as well as sweep other big book awards, and not only once but an unprecedented Hugo three years running 2015-16-17 for every volume in The Broken Earth Trilogy, hyperbolinfinite sci-fantasy.

If you dig world-building epics like Dune this is custom-tailored for you. Reading now, it is a trip and a half, what a ride. Think Ursula K. Leguin, Octavia Butler, Frank Herbert.
