2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Kennedy will write Speculative Philadelphia, a collection of short stories focusing on science and speculative fiction taking place in past, present, and future in Black Philadelphia. Each story will feature a Black protagonist in a particular Philadelphia neighborhood during different historical periods, and will explore themes of time travel, the supernatural, and the social complexities of being a Black woman in this country. Kennedy plans to publish these stories and share them through Black Tribbles, a radio show she co-hosts that explores geek culture through the lens of the Black American experience.
