The #BlackHistoryIsNow movement is still going strong as Blavity has teamed up with Spotify to find ways to celebrate black history beyond February.

While black history is imperative in understanding where we come from, reflecting on our black future can help us imagine where we can go.

This is why Afrofuturism, a movement filled with futuristic themes that incorporates elements of black history and culture, is so important -- and why we must all work to better embrace it.

So we teamed up with Spotify to ask Twitter users what they think about Afrofuturism and why it matters. Check out the responses below!

We kicked off the discussion by asking users how they define Afrofuturism:

Afrofuturism is a verb -- it’s black people taking action to create the future of our dreams. Afrofuturism spans across multiple disciplines, and includes everything from how we envision technology, literature, and art. In an interview with CNN, founder of arts and animation company Kugali, Fikayo Adeola said, "It's people of African descent looking at themselves in the future and what their society and their culture will look like ten years from now, twenty years from now, a thousand years from now.”

Here are a few reasons why we love the concept of Afrofuturism:

From the past to the present, Afrofuturism has no boundaries. Artists who embody Afrofuturism include legends such as Prince, Janet Jackson and Missy Elliott. There is no shortage of talent and artists who use Afrofuturistic themes in their work.

The hit film “Black Panther” reignited a sense of the power and purpose of Afrofuturism. After the premiere of the movie, some teachers began teaching Wakanda curriculum to inform and engage their students of true black history. Our audiences shared with us aspects of society they would love to change.

Black history is happening all around, and the future is ours to create. To get more inspiration and help motivate you in your own journey of excellence, check out Spotify’s special “Black History Is Happening Now” hub curated by the queen of all things excellent, Janelle Monáe.
