The public is invited to a literary voyage light years ahead, across galaxies, by looking to the past to go forward, and taking in this very moment. “Black to the Future, Past and Present” featuring local writers: Jeneé Darden, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Audrey T. Williams and James Cagney, explores Black literature and time this Friday, June 22, at 7 p.m. in Books Inc., 1344 Park St.

The reading and discussion will explore how time shows up in such genres as Afrofuturism, poetry and journalism. The authors will attempt to answer how — with today’s racial tension — they utilize the past, present and future in the work they create.
