BLACK HISTORY MONTH. Throughout February, 2019- I will be posting a thread about the contributions of African-American & other African heritage persons to the genres/mediums of science fiction, horror, fantasy, comic books & video games. "Real Life" & "Fictional" characters.
BLACK HISTORY MONTH. This thread acknowledging & honoring Black contributions & representations in these genres will be done in different "categories." "Those Before Us..." will focus on real persons who have since passed on. "Present Day" will be about real persons who are
still living; even if they have not worked/appeared in these mediums recently. "Fictional Character" will be just that- the complex & complicated portrayals of African/Black characters in fiction. Finally, there will be every so often throughout the thread- "Futures So Bright"
will spotlight an up and coming person (mostly young people) who have contributed to these genres as part of their young careers. And... whether they continue in sci-fi or horror or these other genres/mediums... you know "Their Future's So Bright They Gotta Wear Shades!!!!
