The Future Histories Project

The following entries focus on considerations of "future histories," or speculative considerations of how we will acknowledge and celebrate key ideas, art forms, and cultural figures in years to come. Typically, during the month of February, we look back on past struggles and achievements of a people. For this project, however, instead of looking back, we decided to look slightly forward by devoting a few entries to contemplations of the future, or perhaps the possible futures of black history and black studies @ SIUE.
