Black Sci-Fi Book ClubNov 3 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Hosted by film and dance artist Kemi Craig, Blackspace Sci-Fi Club is a space to gather and explore fantasy, speculative narratives, and science fiction by and for people of the African diaspora. Over three sessions, a lounge space will be offered at the Gallery, for participants to imagine, dream, be empowered, and be inspired by stories that conceptualize Blackness at the merging of past, present, and future. Don’t miss the second installment of this exciting new series, Black Sci-Fi Book Club!
Share stories from science fiction writers of the African diaspora that you may already know such as Octavia Butler, Nalo Hopkins and N.K. Jemisen, to others that you may not have heard of such as River Solomons, Samuel Delaney, and Roxanne Gay. From graphic novels, short stories, and novels to poetry and comic books, there should be something for readers of all ages and interests. You don’t need to have read anything before coming to this book club. Instead, we will introduce and create access to a library of content that you can read or listen to afterward.
In conjunction with AGGV project Blueprints for the Afrofuture curated by guest curator, Kemi Craig.
Blackspace Sci-fi Club Series is an invitation to people who identify as a person of the African Diaspora or as Black. Admission by donation.
