(W) Octavia Butler, Damian Duffy (A/CA) John Jennings
Now a FX/Hulu original series. Winner of the 2018 Eisner Award for Best Adaptation from Another Medium. More than 35 years after its release, Octavia E. Butler's bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece Kindred
continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Dana, a young black woman is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre-Civil War South. As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana's own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him.
