In the Future

An artist made a billboard to protest gentrification in a downtown Pittsburgh neighbourhood. The billboard read "THERE ARE BLACK PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE." I love it. It's afrofuturism in real life.


This is from a collection of advice on how to email busy people, but I would like us to apply it to everything. Let's just be straightforward about what we want! How refreshing and idea.

“If you want a meeting, ask for a meeting. Provide some time options and ask for a specified length. If you want an introduction, ask for an introduction. If you’re looking for funding, tell him you’re currently fundraising and ask to meet to show him your pitch. Don’t be sly. Don’t hint. Make the process ridiculously easy by just asking for what you want.”
