The Hate U Give OFFICIAL TRAILER


Anyone who knows me probably knows that I've been trying to tell literally anyone who will listen about the sheer brilliance of Angie Thomas's award-winning 2017 young adult novel "The Hate U Give" about a young black girl who is the only witness to the shooting of her lifelong best friend--who is unarmed--by the police and the whirlwind of events that follows. I have never read a book or really consumed any piece of art that so deftly and uncompromisingly runs the gauntlet of all that encompasses the experience of being black in America. From mass incarceration to an uncle who is police officer to "passing" at a predominantly white private high school to having a white boyfriend who evolves from reluctant ally to willing accomplice and another white best friend who falls off because "you talk about race too much" to absent fathers in jail to present fathers doing their best despite a checkered past to protests turned riots to being pressured not to snitch by rival gangs who end up joining hands in the streets and so much more. 

This is one of the most important books you will ever read, especially if you are a white person and I can't recommend it highly enough. I cried through the last four chapters. My first thought when I saw that they were making a movie out of this was that they better not water this shit down. Then I watched the trailer. NOPE. NOT DOING THAT. They even teased my favorite scene in the book at the very end with the tear gas (if you read it, you know; I almost cried all over again). SO EXCITED FOR THIS. If you haven’t read this, DO IT NOW. In the words of Chris from P.I. Forever, "we need movies like [this] right now."

Happy 25th and 20th Anniversary "Parable of the Sower" and "Parable of the Talents" by Octavia E. Butler (and Happy 71st Birthday Octavia!)

(c) Patti Perret/The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens
Today, in celebration of Octavia E. Butler's birthday, I would like to talk about Earthseed. 2018 marks the 25th and 20th anniversary, respectively, of Octavia E. Butler's landmark duology, Parable of the Sower (1993) and Parable of the Talents (1998) and not a moment too soon. The Earthseed Cycle, named for the fictional (but all too real) religion that forms the core of the story, is perhaps the most relevant work of fiction to the social and political landscape of 2018. The dystopian future that Butler extrapolates here is so realistic as to almost feel prophetic. At the very least, the Earthseed Cycle, set almost entirely between the years 2024 and 2035, is a cautionary tale of a future that does not seem very far off from being realized--indeed, in many ways, it feels a little too close for comfort. Which is even more staggering when you consider the words of best-selling, award-winning author of "The Fifth Season," N.K. Jemisin, who first read Earthseed when it first came out and thought it "seemed far-fetched."
