Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman writes that, “the boundary-pushing genre of the horror film has always been a site for provocative explorations of race in American popular culture”. Unfortunately, the genre has mostly been dominated by white culture, depicting a very limited point of view of the way horror can be told. Over the last few decades, Black filmmakers have carved out space for themselves, telling stories that reflect their everyday lives and exploring new futures. This film series aims to show horror through the Black lens and the ways that Black horror has shifted and continues to mold in new ways.

As part of this series, we will be joined (virtually) by scholar, producer, and writer Tananarive Due in conversation with curator, artist, and community organizer Mahlet Cuff. A leading voice in Black speculative fiction for more than 20 years, Tananarive Due is an award-winning author who teaches Black Horror and Afrofuturism at UCLA, is an executive producer on Shudder’s groundbreaking documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, and has won an American Book Award, an NAACP Image Award, and a British Fantasy Award.
