Infinitum, An Afrofuturist Tale: Tim Fielder, in Conversation with Edward A. Hall and Victor LaValle

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Description

Charis Books and More / Charis Circle in collaboration with the Auburn Avenue Research Library, welcome illustrator, cartoonist, and animator, Tim Fielder, in conversation with Edward A. Hall and Victor LaValle for a celebration of Infinitum, a groundbreaking, full-color Afrofuturist graphic novel that captures the spirit of the record-breaking film Black Panther and its mantra “Wakanda Forever.”

For decades, the immortal AjA wanders the world, mourning his lost subjects and searching for a new kingdom.His journey leads him across time, allowing him to witness the trans-Atlantic slave trade, the New World, and the American Civil Rights Movement. The expansion of global technology brings about intergalactic travel, first contact with an alien species, and conflicts within and ultimately outside the known universe. Thrust into these seminal events, AjA, now known by many as “John,” faces harrowing decisions that will determine mankind’s physical and spiritual trajectory.

In 260 stunningly, emotionally evocative full-color images, INFINITUM presents a unique cosmic experience,addressing pressing issues of racism, classism, gender inequality, the encroachment of technology, and the spiritual cost of war, while exposing the history behind ancient mysteries, including Olmec heads and Maroon societies.
