What is Cyberfunk? It is a vision of the future with an Afrocentric flavor. It is the Singularity without the Eurocentric foundation. It is Bladerunner with sunlight, Neuromancer with melanin, cybernetics with rhythm.
The word ‘punk’ when used in literary circles signifies a rebellion against conventional concepts and conventions. For us, funk serves a similar purpose. It indicates the infusion of African/African Diaspora inclusion into the storytelling, bringing to the forefront our characters and our unique concepts. The word funk also expands the interpretation. Funk is not only doom and gloom, it is light and joy, and it envisions a future of inclusion and equality.
