Walidah Imarisha (USA) is a writer, spoken word artist, teacher and ‘rebel by reason’. Together with adrienne maree brown, she compiled Octavia’s Brood, an anthology of science fiction stories about social justice. ‘Visionary science fiction’: radical science fiction that starts with real world experiences and imagines new ways of understanding and dealing with them.
