I really liked reading this article, as it introduced me to some authors that I didn’t know wrote science fiction and fantasy. Great job!

GREAT BLACK AUTHORS OF SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY: Past & Present
Ask people to name Black authors of science fiction and fantasy and only a few names will be repeated, if any names are known at all: Octavia Butler…Tananarive Due…L. A. Banks…Walter Mosley. While, most certainly, these brilliant authors should be in everyone’s library, you are cheating yourself if you do not know of – or explore – the many other great Black authors of speculative fiction.
The Black presence and impact on the world of speculative fiction is a vast and powerful one. Some of these authors you may have heard of; some you may not have. Some will absolutely surprise you. All of them tell Blacknificent stories.
Let’s dive in and see just how deep this well of creativity is.
Charles W. Chesnutt (1858-1932)
