2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

M. Asli will create a poster-sized infographic revolving around the history of African Americans in speculative fiction books and movies. Through images and text, the poster will not only supply the reader with an introduction to this canon of work, but also highlight and connect it to a larger framework that is contemporary and relates to African American youth. The poster will be introduced as an educational tool within select Philadelphia high schools during the 2014-2015 year, with accompanying presentations and workshops aiming to encourage students’ engagement in story and world building techniques that can potentially enrich and transform their lives.
