(?   -    ) US activist, journalist, editor and author, professionally active from before 1980s; she is of sf interest for her first novel, Where It Rains In Color (2022), set in a portion of the home galaxy occupied by Homo sapiens, on the planet Swazembi, colonized by an African civilization (see Afrofuturism Colonization of Other Worlds; (race in sf); Space Opera). The protagonist, after winning a beauty contest and being named the Rare Indigo as a consequence, finds herself succumbing to a disfiguring disease, which opens gates of Perception for her which are both self-healing, and revelatory about the true structure of galactic civilization.
