Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements

Interested in Afrofuturism? Want to learn about how science fiction and social justice are intertwined?
Well, you’re in the right place. Join us for an interactive panel and book reading featuring Mia Mingus and Walidah Imarisha. Books for sale will be available! Co-edited by artists and organizers Adrienne Maree Brown and Walidah Imarisha.Octavia's Brood is an anthology of short stories which explores the connection between “radical speculative fiction and movements for social change. When thinking about the liberation of all people, it is much easier to think about what we are fighting against, but how often do we think about what we are fighting for? Octavia's Brood and these young visionaries challenge us to do that in our daily political practices, and the planned two-day series will help cultivate these skills.*For accessibility requests, please contact Adorie Howard: adorie@stanford.edu
