Required reading

I didn’t attend Wiscon 38, so I didn’t hear N. K. Jemisin’s GoH speech, which is reproduced here. It is important that her speech is read widely. I’d like to think we’d all want to belong to a diverse, inclusive, non-discriminatory science fiction and fantasy community, but what she and others have experienced proves that some people would rather rewind to the 1950s. That’s not what I want. More importantly, it’s not right, it’s not just, and it isn’t acceptable.

Evidently there is still an awful long way to go. That must change.
