The Quietus ran an depth interview with Moor Mother aka Camae Ayewa a couple years ago. An excerpt from the article states:

“The principles of her music are put into practice, too, in north Philadelphia. Ayewa and her partner Rasheedah Phillips established the Black Quantum Futurism collective to bring together Afrofuturist frameworks and methodologies that propose ‘a new approach to living and experiencing reality by way of the manipulation of space-time in order to see into possible futures, and/or collapse space time into a desired future in order to bring about that future’s reality’. That, in turn, led to the founding of the Community Futures Lab in north Philadelphia, an Afrofuturist space that offers artistic workshops, discussions, performances and housing resources to challenge gentrification. When not writing poetry or music, Ayewa runs the lab, researches or teaches.”
