If you are considering purchasing a series or novel with Black Science Fiction or Fantasy Protagonist, take some time to consider these two questions:
1 Is it written by a Black author?
The reading experience is different when it’s created by a Black author. Oftentimes there are suitable nuances that the Black creative brings to the work. Remember, the lens is different which means the emphasis and ideology is too…
2 Are there cultural/Afrocentric themes woven within the science or fantasy world-building?
Themes are incredibly important to consider but more importantly when there is a mixture of Afrocentrism, it changes elements of the genre. Oftentimes, the sharing of cultural themes brings a unique twist to the world-building.
