Jemisin and New York Times bestselling authorIjeoma Oluo celebrate their respective paperback releases of How Long 'til Black Future Month?, a collection of short fiction about destruction, rebirth, and redemption, and So You Want to Talk about Race, a blend of personal anecdote, research and analysis meant to facilitate honest discussion about race and racism in America.
