NEW Book Release: Resurrecting the King by Stafford Battle
Africa’s most troubling setbacks can be resolved by embracing speculative fiction and modern technology. The Great War of Africa can be terminated according to a new speculative fiction novel written by Stafford Battle.
European colonialism ripped away from Africa trillions of dollars in mineral wealth, pristine forests, precious wildlife and human labor. Diverse communities that peacefully co-existed for hundreds of years became violent adversaries after greedy industrialists sliced up an entire continent for selfish profits. Bloody atrocities and senseless chaos destroyed the homes and livelihoods of millions of people – creating and intensifying the Great War of Africa. Now, as natural resources dwindle and humanity faces dire climate challenges, this war could destabilize the entire planet, pushing civilization back into the stone-age.
Africa was once abundant, now it must resuscitate itself; enact plausible interactions to solve universal, human problems such as famine and illiteracy. AFROFuturism can inspire people to cooperate and flourish in the 21st century regardless of traditional bias or misguided political affiliations.

Immortal Love Story
If you are attacked by Doro, the last thing you see will be his eyes. You, of course, will die screaming in terror as your soul is ripped from your corpse. Doro will wear your flesh for as long as he wants or until he gets bored with it and hungers for a fresh body and kills again and again and again.
He is an African mutant born during the time of the ancient Nubians before Egypt rose to greatness. At puberty, Doro discovered he couldn't die and he went insane. He murdered hundreds of soldiers in mere moments. He hid. It took him centuries to gather the strength to control his hunger and find a purpose for his gifts. He learned to feed only on enemies and occasionally on gifted individuals who tasted good.
Captured African people did more than sing gospel hyms and bow their heads while being oppressed by sadistic white plantation owners.
Blacks expressed inspirational exploits of freedom and extreme heroics that painted pictures of a fantastic future if a person was courageous enough to take the challenge.
These were the stories spread by the early Architects of AFROFuturism.
