Indexical presents: Moor Mother—a Philadelphia artist praised as part of "a new generation of visionary black storytellers" (NYTimes)—premieres a new video followed by a discussion of Black Quantum Futurism theory and practice with her collaborator Rasheedah Phillips. Weaving through haunting slave narratives as dystopian allegory, negro spirituals, and Black ritual, Moor Mother's work points to a liberated future through Black Quantum Futurism, a project in partnership with author Rasheedah Phillips. Through a time of ecological and social disaster, she says, "I'm not saying, this is the end, we're all doomed," but rather that "I believe there is another way. So it's about trying to get the audience to understand another way of digesting the truth."
