Black Freedom Beyond Borders: Memories of Abolition Day
Join Wakanda Dream Lab and PolicyLink in a storyworld of safety and freedom in a future without prisons and policing.

While debates about “defunding” raise the question of what a new public safety system might look like, authors and artists are showing us what is possible through speculative fiction. In the spirit of visionary fiction, we convened future-bending Black storytellers for a Black Speculative Writer's Room Project, and together, we created an anthology of freedom dream stories exploring a world after the abolition of policing and prisons.

We invite you to a reading and exploration with contributors in the forthcoming anthology, Black Freedom Beyond Borders: Memories of Abolition Day, speculative fiction of freedom dreams from Black Radical storytellers including:

- Amber Butts (Black Youth Project)
- Ayize Jama-Everett (The Liminal Trilogy)
- Calvin Williams (Wakanda Dream Lab)
- Donté Clark (The North Pole)
- Naudika Williams (We Inherit, We Shape, We Heal)
- Shawn Taylor (Nerds of Color)
- Walidah Imarisha (Octavia's Brood)
- Amir Khadar (Black Freedom Beyond Borders, anthology artist)

In this session we will hear from the contributors and curators reading excerpts of their pieces, and exploring visuals with augmented reality artwork to bring this liberated storyline to life.

We look forward to sharing this creative and visionary space with you.
