#BlackGamersMatter: Gaming and the Black Imaginary

Alum Dr. Grace Gispson discusses "#BlackGamersMatter: Gaming and the Black Imaginary" as part of Temple University's series on Digital Humanities and Afrofuturism.

From the description:

Digital humanities offer a continuously evolving set of tools to challenge the traditional ways of managing and promoting the use of data, from creation to discovery to reuse. Afrofuturism is a reimagining of time and space as they relate to Black art, history, and culture, through fantasy and/or technology to speculate about the future. This symposium invites scholars, artists, and other practitioners to share their work as it relates to the Afrofuturist aesthetic and Black digital humanities practices to speculate about the future of cultural heritage preservation.
