Coloring Science Fiction

(p.3) Introduction
Black and Brown Planets

Isiah Lavender III

University Press of Mississippi

With his introduction, “Coloring Race in Science Fiction,” Isiah Lavender, III provides answers to why he and others study race and racism in SF, that invoking race and racism in an outwardly white genre is necessary. Coloring science fiction is an absolute and radical commitment because skin color matters in visions of the future. SF has charted a few of the alternatives for this unknown territory, and the change presents both opportunities and challenges for society to establish new values.

Keywords:   Race and Racism, Afrofuturism, Indigenous SF, Brown Planets, Black Planets
