Octavia Butler’s Kindred Adapted into a Show #SciFiSunday
Octavia Butler’s Kindred is now a TV show. Kindred is a classic science fiction novel, and a groundbreaking work from the legendary Butler. Here’s more from Vanity Fair:
Released in 1979, Kindred tells the story of Dana, a young Black woman who gets transported back in time to the plantation where her ancestors lived and worked. She acclimates to life under enslavement, figuring out how to survive until she’s able to return to her present life in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband, a white man named Kevin. The story is harrowing, a tensile exploration of the horrors of slavery and the psychological steeliness it took to survive. “I set out to make people feel history,” Butler once said.
