520    In the Black Fantastic' assembles art and imagery from 
       across the African diaspora that embraces ideas of the 
       mythic and the speculative. It brings to life the forces 
       that shape Afrofuturism - the cultural movement that 
       conjures otherworldly visions out of the everyday of Black
       experience - and beyond, looking at how speculative 
       fictions in Black art and culture are boldly reimagining 
       perspectives on race, gender, identity and the body in the
       21st century. Standing apart from Western narratives of 
       progress and modernity - based as they are on the 
       historical subjugation of people of colour - the book 
       explores how Black artists are drawing inspiration from 
       African-originated myth, knowledge systems and spiritual 
       practices to confound the Western dichotomy between the 
       real and unreal, the natural and the supernatural. With 
       250 illustrations spanning the spheres of photography, 
       painting, sculpture, cinema, literature and architecture, 
       this book reaches across time, space and art form, drawing
       together everything from works by leading visual artists 
       such as Kara Walker, Chris Ofili and Lina Iris Viktor to 
       groundbreaking films like Black Panther and Get Out and 
       the radical politics of pan-Africanism.
