Noted fantasy author N.K. Jemisin (The Inheritance trilogy) is quoted in the video saying:
“When there were people of color in these books, they were in the background, or they died quickly, or any number of other stereotypes. For the most part, they just weren’t there. And in Octavia Butler’s works, they not only were there, they were prominent; they were protagonists.”Enjoy the video, and Happy Black History Month!
