Black to the Future: POC Representation in Time Travel

If you want to travel back in time, things get tricky if you’re a person of color. But how can we use time travel to confront colorism, colonialism and culture clashes? If you’re curious about the current media representation of minorities in the time travel genre, come to this panel to hear some of our favorite stories that didn’t mess it up… and we’ll talk about some titles that did!
