BLACK SCIENCE FICTION




Black science fiction or black speculative fiction is an umbrella
term that covers a variety of activities within the science fiction,
fantasy, and horror genres where people of the African diaspora take
part or are depicted.

In the late 1990s a number of cultural critics began to use the term
Afrofuturism to depict a cultural and literary movement of thinkers
and artists of the African diaspora who were using science, technology,
and science fiction as means of exploring the black experience.

AFROFUTURISM




Afrofuturism is a literary and cultural aesthetic that combines elements
of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magic
realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the
present-day dilemmas of people of color, but also to revise, interrogate,
and re-examine the historical events of the past.

First coined by Mark Dery in 1993, and explored in the late 1990s through
conversations led by scholar Alondra Nelson, Afrofuturism addresses themes
and concerns of the African Diaspora through a technoculture and science
fiction lens, encompassing a range of media and artists with a shared
interest in envisioning black futures that stem from Afrodiasporic
experiences.

SPECULATIVE FICTION
BY WRITERS OF COLOR




Speculative fiction is defined as science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
Within those categories exists many other subcategories, for example
cyberpunk, magical realism, and psychological horror.

The terms "multicultural," "person of color," "women of color," and
"people of color," are generally considered United States terms that
came into use in order to redefine what it means to be a part of
historically marginalized racial and ethnic groups within Western
society. A writer of color is generally defined as a writer that is
a part of a marginalized culture in regards to traditional Euro-Western
mainstream culture. This includes Asians, African-Americans, Africans,
Native Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.
