Bio

Over the past 20 years, Calvin Williams has been worldbuilding for liberation.

As a cultural strategist, he believes radical imagination activates our power to transform liberatory possibilities into irresistible realities.

As Cultural Strategies Fellow at Movement Strategy Center, he conspires with fellow afrofuturists to produce immersive spaces for new stories and storytellers of Black Joy to emerge.

And as an Impact Producer for The Big We, Offsides Productions and Wakanda Dream Lab – he builds fandom communities organized by shared narratives, values and vision for a just future.

He moonlights as an educator, reluctant poet, youth advocate, and co-host for The Big We podcast.

After many journeys across places, space and time – Calvin lives in Oakland with his Beloveds, Leila & Baby Malik Amari.
