CAROUSEL Magazine: Indigenous + Afrofuturisms
Edited by Molly Cross-Blanchard + Terese Mason Pierre
Call for Submissions
Speaking on her work in science fiction, says Octavia E. Butler “The one thing that I and my main characters never do when contemplating the future is to give up hope.”
For an upcoming edition of CAROUSEL, we invite submissions from Black and Indigenous authors on the theme of AFROFUTURISM + INDIGENOUS FUTURISM.
As we watch with triumph the revitalization of Indigenous ways of knowing and the brilliance of Black liberation, it is authors like Ytasha Womack and Cherie Dimaline
who remind us of the importance of continuing to manifest futures for peoples who have long been treated as fixtures of the past. We don’t know what will be lighted when the sun rises on the next millennium, but we know we will be there to see it … and we will be excellent.
