Chi Chavanu Àse; Black Sci-Fi
This week Harris spoke to Chi Chavanu Àse, a Science Fiction/Fantasy author and activist who was first introduced to Sci-fi by her mother at an early age. She initially began writing and performing poetry at the age of twelve. Over time, she began to notice how difficult it was to find books that she could associate or identify with the characters, given the lack of representation. Thus, it became her greatest desire that little Black children would see themselves represented in every genre, especially sci-fi. Her first book, Journey to Ghana and Other Stories, focuses entirely on the Black experience. Follow Chi on Facebook and instagram.
