Lost in the intellectual history of “cyberculture” and automation is the interest it drew from a spectrum of Black radical thinkers in the 1960s. By looking at excerpts from essays, films and other archival materials we will discuss their ideas about automation and cyberculture. We will also look at how they understood the consequences of labor saving technologies on conceptions of black freedom and democracy at the dawn of neoliberalism. I hope we make some connections and parallels to today.
