Inspired by Zora Neale Hurston's legacy of valuing the voices and sounds of black culture, "Afrofuturism -- What is its Sound?" is a two-day event that will marry elements of futurism or science fiction to the oral tradition and music technology evident in black history and culture.

This event is hosted by the University of Central Florida’s College of Arts & Humanities and its Center for Humanities and Digital Research as part of the 2021 ZORA! Festival of the Arts and Humanities.
