    Black to the Future:
    A Black Science Fiction Festival
    June 11-13, 2004
    Seattle, Washington, USA

    Black to the Future is a 3-day multidisciplinary festival
    featuring some of the nation's most accomplished science
    fiction novelists and essayists including Octavia Butler,
    Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes, and Walter Mosley. For three
    days, we will celebrate the remarkable accomplishments black
    artists have made to speculative fiction through engaging
    and exciting programs including:

    * A mini Black Science Fiction Film Festival
    * Performing arts events
    * Panels, readings, and book signings
    * A Black Science Fiction Book Fair

    "Black to the Future will provide a welcome networking
    opportunity for writers who are currently published, but it
    would electrify young writers and fans, black and white, who
    have never considered the degree to which writers of color
    have been a part of this field," said science fiction/
    fantasy writer Tananarive Due. This festival, the first
    of its kind, will explore the black aesthetic in not only
    literature, but also in film, music, and other forms of
    creative expression.
