Joe was inspired to start his business because he felt a need to empower himself and others disaffected by popular culture. Joe’s comic books and video games fall into the “afrofuturism” genre. Afrofuturism uses elements of science fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy to critique present-day struggles of Blacks, while also re-examining historical events from the past. Through his creative video games, users can take a look back at the history of African people, while also imagining and visualizing possibilities for their future. He hopes the digital experience that his company offers will help other Blacks feeling disaffected by popular culture.
