DUST Explains George Clinton’s Role In Afrofuturism New Animated Video [Watch]

first_imgDUST, an online media company focused on all things science fiction, has recently rolled out a new series. Titled Afrofuturism, the short videos within the collection explore how specific black artists and figures helped shape afrofuturism, an aesthetic that combines science fiction, African history, magical realism, with the past, present, and future experiences of being black in our society. For their newest installment, DUST has produced a new video focused on George Clinton. The short, vibrant video is narrated by Little Simz and looks at Clinton’s out-of-this-world aesthetic and impact on music. Previous segments of Afrofuturism have focused on Sun Ra and Star Trek’s Uhura, and episodes on Jimi Hendrix and Missy Elliot are slated to come out in the future.
