A richly illustrated exploration of Black culture at its most wildly imaginative, artistically ambitious, and politically urgent.

In the Black Fantastic celebrates works by African diaspora artists, highlighting mythic and speculative elements of fable, folklore, sci-fi, spiritual traditions, pageantry, and Afrofuturism. It examines perspectives on race, gender, and identity, resisting Western narratives of progress, while showing connection to African-originated myths, beliefs & knowledge systems. Featuring over 300 illustrations, this beautifully designed book includes works by Walker, Ofili & Gallagher; films like Daughters of the Dust & Get Out; and the politics of Pan-Africanism & postcolonialism.
Each section— “Invocation,” “Migration,” and “Liberation”—includes an introductory text by Ekow Eshun and longer essays by Eshun, Kameelah L. Martin, and Michelle D. Commander.
