In honor of Black History Month, the Center for Science and the Imagination, along with FilmBar proudly presents John Sayles’ groundbreaking Black speculative fiction film "The Brother from Another Planet." With an introductory discussion from scholar, author and game designer Malik Toms, we’ll look at how this film and contemporary works like "Sorry To Bother You" and "Atlanta," use the tools of speculative fiction — the magical, the fantastic and the imaginative — to examine the lived experiences of Black Americans.
