bookshelves: sci-fi, brown-authors, poc-authors

Short collection with 2 short stories, a performance speech that provides the origins of the book title, and an interview. Most of the collection focuses on the intersectionality of race. Nalo's interview predominantly focuses on her experience as a black woman, in a white dominant and often white privileged field (the sci-fi/fantasy field). Her speech invokes her talents to provide a performance that helps open up a conversation of race. One short story is a new play on a classic Shakespeare play -- putting important spins on the characterizations of black and white characters.

A quick read.
