Smith, Kent

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) US author in whose sf novel, Future X (1990), a Black man from a racist twenty-first century discovers a Time-Travel device, returns to the time of Malcolm X (1925-1965) with the intention of saving him from assassination, causes his death months too early, and finds himself bound into taking his place. But history continues as before, for there is no way, the book seems to argue, of curing the system that killed Malcolm X in the first place. [JC]
