Black Quantum Futurism is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Camae Ayewa and Rasheedah Phillips, based in Philadelphia, that weaves quantum physics, afrofuturism, and Afrodiasporic concepts of time, ritual, text, and sound together to works escaping oppression in temporality, science and technology.
