NEW: The Afropean Contemporary - Literary And Social Journal From Germany

The Afropean Contemporary literary and social journal is a project of Afro-German poet Philipp Khabo Koepsell. It features poetry, photography and exclusives interviews.
Prof. Susan Arndt, Professor of English Studies and Anglophone Literatures at the University of Bayreuth.

“Taking the 1884/5 Berlin Conference, which initiated the colonial scramble for Africa, and Afrofuturism as its cosmic launch pads, The Afropean Contemporary beautifully mashes-up in word and image Black German cultural productions in history, sex work, poetics, graphics, music, theater, and film. The Afropean Contemporary retrofuturistically excavates the Black futures we have already lived within those Afro-pasts inaccessible through the tools of colonial history in order to free our minds and with the certainty that our asses will most definitely follow.”
