It’s Black Speculative Fiction Month and I wanted to highlight some of the projects I’m supporting this month!
AMBER AND THE HIDDEN CITY GRAPHIC NOVEL
Author Milton Davis is turning his YA novel Amber and the Hidden City into a graphic novel. Amber is the story of an African-American girl who discovers her magical powers on an amazing journey to a hidden African kingdom. Milton has partnered with Peter Daniel and Pedastudio in Lagos, Nigeria, on this project so it should be dope.
NIOBE: SHE IS DEATH
Stranger Comics is back with more Niobe tales! Niobe: She is Death is a tale of revelations for a young woman who is tired of running. Niobe has lost her faith – in humanity and the world around her. In the sequel to the acclaimed Niobe: She is Life, we witness Niobe’s journey from heartbroken teenager to warrior woman, when Niobe becomes a badass bounty hunter, hunting down sex traffickers and slave traders. The very ones set out by her father to track her down. If you put down $100, you can get Niobe in the Pathfinder role-playing game!
I came across the Afrofuture Youth campaign randomly on Twitter one day and it sounded amazing! It’s a Detroit-based, youth led, initiative that gives middle and high schoolers space and resources to build a new, more equitable world, through an Afrofuturist, healing-centered framework, to support all aspects of black lives.
