Black Sci-Fi & Fantasy + BOOK RECOMMENDS [BHM VID #4]


If i were to ask you to name a popular black science fiction or fantasy author most people can think of two names, if that, Octavia E Butler and Samuel R. Delany. So this video is about giving you both a brief history of black authors in the genre and some books that you may not have read and should check out. So that the next time you think “well if you want diversity you should write your own stuff” you will know just how full of it you are.
