Black Panther Inspires NoveList to Add Afrofuturism Category

NoveList announced that to celebrate the release of Black Panther, it has created a new searchable genre: Afrofuturism and Afrofantasy. The company defines Afrofuturism as “a distinct artistic and philosophical movement that critically reinterprets black identity, the history of Africa, and the African diaspora through a science fictional/hypertechnological lens,” according to a blog post. Afrofantasy is “genre fantasy featuring mainly black characters and set in a fantasy version of Africa, a fantasy setting inspired by Africa, or among African diasporic populations encountering magic anywhere.”
