On the Passing of Octavia Butler (Octavia Estelle Butler June 22, 1947-February 25, 2006)


I first read about her death this morning on brownfemipower: women of color blogspot

Wood s lot has a fantastic group of postings on Butler's life and writings.

I think the fact that she proved that all kinds of stories can be told through Black characters (and specifically Black women) is a great part of Octavia Butler's legacy.
