Deer heads, Tituba, and zombies, oh my! Jen hands the podcast over to Tonia Thompson of Nightlight Podcast, who moderates a discussion about black horror between Eden Royce, Linda Addison, and Sheree Renée Thomas. These phenomenal horror writers bring their lives, their careers, and their knowledge to the table to tell us about the history of Black horror, the ways in which Black culture is colonized in horror, the importance of publishing markets for Black stories, the impact of Get Out, what they hope to see in Black Horror in the coming year, and so much more that you’re just going to have to listen to every word they say.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
