Celebrating Octavia E. Butler

A full day of radio dedicated to the life and work of American science fiction author Octavia E. Butler. Hailed as the ‘Mother of Afrofuturism’, Butler’s unique vision of science fiction expanded the genre to the disenfranchised, as her works tackled far-reaching issues of race, gender and power relations.

This broadcast also aims to raise funds for two projects: Birthing Project USA, an African American maternal and child health program which operates internationally, as well as Clockshop, a California based arts and culture organization that seeks to generate social change through the transformation of public space.
