Futuristic science fiction and fantasy gives creators the opportunity to examine important issues, spinning destructive systems to their natural ends and envisioning futures full of tech for everyone. Yet so often in these narratives, whiteness is centered, diversity relegated to alien races, sidekick characters or set dressing. What does it mean when underrepresented people are left out of the future? What stories do they have to tell and what issues today will make their way to the stars?
