#ohoreads Parable Of The Sower by Octavia E. Butler. In 2024, America has collapsed into a bleak wasteland where water and other resources are scarce. Those who can afford it live in gated communities; the less fortunate allow themselves to be enslaved by corporations, or risk violent death in the open. Black teenager Lauren Oya Olamina grows up in a struggling gated community, the walls of which barely keep out intruders. She has hyper-empathy, a condition that makes her feel the pain of others. When the community is invaded and her family murdered, she has to take to the road. Developing her own belief system, which she calls Earthseed, she helps others and slowly gathers followers. This seminal sci-fi work came out in 1993, but is terrifyingly prescient today. Psyched about the blues opera based on this book by Toshi and Bernice Johnson Reagon that is coming here with @sifa_sg.

How eerily prescient and relevant, this captivating work constructs a mesmerising meditation on the future of human civilisation through science fiction, African-American spiritualism, a deep examination of gender, race and environmental activism and 200 years of rousing Black American music. Don't miss it at #sifa2018 on 4 & 5 May!
