On November 24-25, 2023, the premier performance of “In the Valley of Coming Forth,” an Afrofuturist play by Dr. Herukhuti, takes over the Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn. This alternative Thanksgiving weekend event presented by the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute tackles themes of European settler-colonialism, imperialism and white supremacy through the story of a Black woman’s struggles, post-apocalypse, to save her non-binary child in the year 2169. The two-day event includes an artist talkback and live DJ sets. Guests are invited to attend in Afrofuturist attire!
