About

“Black history is Black horror” according to novelist and Scholar Tananarive Due. Black audiences and creators have a unique perspective on horror; Black horror is not just a subgenre, it is a rethinking of what horror means. Jordan Peele's 2017 hit Get Out turned Black horror from an underground niche into a commercially viable genre. Separate from cinema, Black history could be thought of as Black horror. This Real Talk will address the way the horror genre reflects and connects with Black history.
