Join us for the opening of the 2017 DLF Forum! We'll be introducing Forum fellows, thanking our sponsors and organizers, and hearing an important keynote talk by Rasheedah Phillips.

Rasheedah Phillips, Esq. will open this year’s DLF Forum with an exciting keynote talk entitled "Creating Communal Space-Times, Activating Quantum Time Capsules."  She'll discuss community-driven documentation, cultural memory and conceptions of time, and the potential of digital libraries to support and be shaped by marginalized people’s work to imagine alternate futures. Phillips will draw on her practical perspectives and experiences as a public interest attorney and activist, working against forces of gentrification and eminent domain in North Philadelphia — and on her conceptual ones, as an artist, science fiction writer, and co-founder of a community center designed around principles of Afrofuturism and Black Quantum Futurism.
