Some of GOH Tananarive Due's work, including Joplin's Ghost, The Between, and The Good House, recovers African-American history through tales of the supernatural. She has written, "Sometimes fiction is the only way to make sense of the insensible." Panelists will explore these and other tales that use the power of the supernatural to engage with the horrors and struggles of Black Americans past and present.

Saturday, July 13 - 11:00 AM, Salon B
From the 24-hour news cycle to online journalism, the media plays an enormous role in our society, but it tends to make less of an appearance in fantasy works. L.
