This  book examines Afrofuturism in African American art, focusing  specifically on images of black women and how those images expand the  discourse of representation in visual culture of the United States. 

This  volume defines a visual language of Afrofuturism that includes  materiality, temporality, and black liberation. Elizabeth Hamilton  discusses the visual progenitors of Afrofuturism. In the artworks of  Pierre Bennu, Sanford Biggers, Alison Saar, Mequitta Ahuja, Robert  Pruitt, Renee Cox, Dawolu Jabari Anderson, Alma Thomas, and Harriet  Powers, the fantastic narratives of Afrofuturism are uncovered through  in-depth case studies. These case studies engage with Afrofuturism as a  black feminist visual theory that helps to unburden the images of black  women from the stereotypical visual scripts that are so common in  contemporary visual culture of the United States. 

The  book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, visual  studies, American literature, gender studies, popular culture, and  African American studies.
