On this episode, Kimberlé Crenshaw is joined by the revolutionary and genre-defying writers N.K Jemisin and Saidiya Hartman, whose work demands a radical reimagination of our present by archiving and writing the violence of the past into imaginations of a limitless future. By inserting Black women into narrative spaces that they have largely been written out of, these women illustrate first hand how we can resist narrative erasure and become the authors of our own stories.

N.K. JEMISIN - Science fiction and fantasy writer; Author of the Broken Earth series, the Inheritance Trilogy, and the Dreamblood Duology; Winner of 3 Hugo Awards
