It is my pleasure to chat with Prof. of English, Kinitra Brooks, who specializes in the study of Black women, genre fiction and popular culture.  Tonight our topic is Searching for Sycorax: Black Women's Hauntings of Contemporary Horror.  We'll delve into how Black women revise horror and how horror provides insight into the speculative creative work of Black women.  Conjure Woman and Beyonce' is on our talking points list as is Conjure Feminism and White Women's Tears.   Stay tuned to the end to hear some reports from Pat the Roving Reporter for VSF and we close with a Spring Meditation dedicated to Isis.
