Natasha A. Kelly – The Comet Reloaded

English event with German subtitles.

Black intellectual and advocate for social rights W.E.B Du Bois’ “The Comet”, one of his first speculative short stories, became instrumental in developing the course for a transnational, interdisciplinary enterprise now known as “Afrofuturism”. After the Berlin scholar, author, artist and activist Natasha A. Kelly organized a three-day symposium in cooperation with HAU Hebbel am Ufer in 2018 to mark Du Bois’ 150th birthday, she is now continuing her engagement with the cosmopolitan in #HAUonline.
