Cross-readings along the axes of travel:
The connection between Middle Passage and space travel is tenuous at best.
Magic interstellar travel and/or the wondrous communication grid can lead to an illusion of outer space and cyberspace as egalitarian.
The Mundane Afrofuturists promise: To produce a collection of Mundane Afrofuturist literature that follows these rules: No interstellar travel— travel is limited to within the solar system and is difficult, time consuming, and expensive.
No aliens unless the connection is distant, difficult, tenuous, and expensive—and they have no interstellar travel either.
No time travel or teleportation.
