It serves as a platform to recognize and appreciate the significant impact we have on the world.”

AfroFuture will feature a two-week expo of digital experiences, wellness sessions, screenings, and panel discussions, an entrepreneurial pitch competition in partnership with Pharrell Williams’ non-profit organization, Black Ambition, the Rising Star challenge for emerging artists seeking an opportunity to perform at this year’s AfroFuture Festival and promote their music to a wider audience.
