Octavia E. Butler was the foremost female African-American science-fiction writer; her dozen novels earned two Hugo Awards as well as making her the first sci-fi writer to receive a MacArthur "genius" grant. Butler's science fiction was disquietingly mind-expanding stuff, with African-American characters who search otherworldly dimensions for insights into Earthbound matters of race, power and the true nature of humanity. Let It Be Known: Short Films Inspired by Octavia E. Butler is a program of experimental films by artists including Jamilah Sabur, Lauren Kelley, Buki Bodunrin, Ezra Claytan Daniels, Suné Woods, Ariel Jackson and Wura-Natasha Ogunji.
