Reading AFROCentric

Many people ask, "Why AFROCentric Science Fiction?" The are many answers; perhaps the most relevant one goes something like this: "For years, a young African American male fantasized about building rockets and exploring space. His inspiration came from old copies of pulp magazines, used comic books, Saturday morning sci-fi TV serials and movies. But he noticed that there weren't many people of color in the future. Not even the first Star Wars movie had any Black people. In visions of the heroic past, there were Greek icons such as Hercules; thundering gods such as the golden haired Thor. And, there was John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes. Apparently, black people performed no great deeds of valor in antiquity or off planet Earth. So, the young man began to write his own fantasy stories about the people surrounding him."
