MOTHER is coming...
...that's right, Octavia Butler, the mother of Black science fiction, is coming to a television near you through Ava Duvernay! Early yesterday it was announced that Duvernay would be creating a television series based off Octavia Butler's novel, Dawn. This marks the first time Butler's work makes a television appearance, and hopefully Mother Butler will once again make way for other Black speculative authors to follow in her footsteps!
