THE BLACK TRIBBLES are now accepting original Afrofuturism submissions for radio live performances!
Philadelphia, PA; Press Release – The Black Tribbles, Philadelphia’s foremost pop culture radio personalities, are accepting submissions for Octavia City, their annual celebration of Afrofuturism.
Every Thursday in April the Black Tribbles Prime radio show will be taken over by Octavia City to feature original works from the Afrofuturism genre. Named in honor of literary giant and Queen of Afrofuturism, Octavia E. Butler, Octavia City, is an opportunity to highlight the newest writers and artists coming out of the genre today.
In the past, selected works were simply read aloud on-air, but now Octavia City goes even bigger with live actor-performed readings! Selected artistic works will be featured online and shared by the Black Tribbles social media accounts. The Black Tribbles look forward to reconnecting with some of their favorite writers and introducing a new crop of talent to the Tribble Nation.
