"Mapping Blackness: Black to the Future"

my friend amanda is doing an art project involving using public participation in "mapping blackness". here is her call:

I need your help with an art project I'm currently working on for an exhibit entitled AFROFUTURISM.

My piece will be called " Mapping Blackness: Black to the Future"...

If you had to draw a map to where the AFROFUTURE is located what would that map look like?

If you feel so inclined, email me your rendition (scan, rendering),

or mail a paper copy to my studio (2323 magnolia st. #6, oakland, ca 94607)

If you're ambitious, try to use only email itself...lines, dots letters to 'draw'...

If you don't want to draw electronically or the old fashioned way, then please include written directions that other blacks could use to get to where you're talking about.

I need these as soon as possible by Aug. 5.

Feel free to pass this on to any others that may be willing to participate.
