Doing the Impossible

Nelson Mandela

 

Real life can be much more fantastic than anything we can create in fiction. Even the great bard Shakespeare is said to have based his play Othello on a real African military man who commanded soldiers during the Medieval Ages when Europe was conquered by Africa. Many popular cinema and TV cowboys were based on Black Buffalo soldiers who roamed the country after the American Civil War.  As the United States became an international power to be feared, Black enlisted men, officers and statesmen risked their lives in foreign lands; they became legendary and help spawn our interstellar starship captains and masked, caped heroes wielding super powers. Sport figures such as Jack Johnson may have forged the template for Luke Cage, a Marvel Superhero.

There have been and always will  be great men and women of African descent who inspire visionaries to capture the essence of incredible deeds within the timeless realm of literature and art.

Doubtless, with the passing of an individual such as Nelson Mandela, many seeds for science fiction and fantasy have been sown. These works will propel us into the impossible as we follow the exploits of heroes who struggle and win against the odds in short stories, novels, theatrical productions, comic books, art and dance.

Even after life, Mandela can become a new beginning for creative minds seeking  to bring forth extraordinary characters and themes in their works.

Space Aliens are Real?

Space Aliens could be very real! And they may most likely visited Africa many times in the past while taking on may different shapes as human or reptiles. The Dogo People claimed have seen the aliens and learned part of their astronomy. In the 21st Century, we may all will see the universe very differently. Science Fiction writers prepare us on how to deal with ET.

Africa Is Melting!

Science Fact and Fiction of global climate change are colliding catastrophically. Our environment will get extremely wet, desperately dry, unbearably cold, and dangerously hot in very rapidly succession. Weather may become totally unpredictable. All Africans  throughout the Black Diaspora will be challenged to maintain connections with family. Living on any coastline will be a difficult task. Sci-Fi writers offers us alternatives to ponder. 

The Resurrection

The Resurrection and Rebellion may be  coming to us soon. We will be reborn in this world when we follow the teachings of spirit brought back to us in the flesh. This healer is not god, he is a symbol of what we should aspire to be. Science and magic have combined to change the world.
