Truth is Stranger Than Fiction    NEW!

The True Horrors of Black Life and Reclamation of Magic and Mysticism in Lovecraft Country--This hour-long session will focus on elements of horror, fantasy, and Afro-Futurism in the Matt Ruff novel and limited HBO series Lovecraft Country. We will begin with a brief exploration of how mystical and spiritual elements were removed from the collective Black American memory, and we will end with an understanding of how the novel, series, and other creative pieces have helped us begin to reclaim those experiences.
