Black Prophets

Posted on October 23, 2009 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

I am going to make the rather radical statement that Science Fiction as a genre is "modern" prophesy. It is prophetic because it states with great accuracy who men and women will react when the changes caused by new technologies alter our environment. Whether it be faster-than-light space travel, meeting new species, or facing god-like decisions that new technology made possible.



If you doubt the importance of Sci-Fi in the creation of prophecy all you have to do is look at history.… Continue

Hello Mr. Grimmett,

I appreciate your aspect of the profile regarding how main stream media has generally ignored the creative ideas and inventions of black people. Fortunately, "main stream" is now becoming more diversified. When I was in elementary school during the 1960's, we were taught mostly European and Caucasian American history. And of course, the only advances made by black people were how to be better slaves.

A few months ago, I stumbled onto a magazine entitled American Legacy. I was utterly blown away by the rich cultural heritage as well as the phenomenal advances made by black people in American history-events that were never mentioned when I was going to school.

As a lover of accurately portrayed history, I have appreciated over the decades the contributions by people of all races, especially minorities. Now we're breaking down walls in the science fiction genre. Please do not get me wrong. I am quite fond of science fiction movies like Star Trek, Star Wars, Star Gate SG-1 and Star Gate Atlantis.

But I have a plan too. They are called the Anatahn Military Alliance. These “brothers from outer space” will be far more menacing than any Borg.

The Fifth Season is coming to TV!

Posted by Stephen Alexander on August 17, 2017 at 5:48am 0 Comments

N.K. Jemisin’s ‘The Fifth Season’ Book To Be Developed As TV Series At TNT!

Now Mr. Hayashi can't complain about there being no other famous black creatives than Delany and Butler. 

http://deadline.com/2017/08/nk-jemisin-the-fifth-season-book-developed-tv-series-tnt-1202150542/

Now who says diversity doesn't sell?! If some yesteryear agent says that, throw this article in their face and say "Are you sure? Now get me TNT's president and NO I won't hold!" 

Of course, this assumes TNT won't screw this up like they did the TFTC revival.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
