Satirical Flights

Last week, I felt compelled to write a little something about the unfortunate, bigoted turn that I see the 2016 presidential campaign taking. I have been particularly struck by the ahistorical commentaries that devalue the contributions of people of color to the foundation of the United States. Focused on examples of Black American reactions to racism in speculative literature and satirical forms since 1965, "Satirical Flights" issues a warning regarding the unsustainability of senseless hatred. Thankfully, the editors over at the LA Review of Books' Avidly, saw the essay's promise and published it today. Here's the link: http://avidly.lareviewofbooks.org/2016/07/27/satirical-flights/

Peace.
