I was invited to do another presentation for Fantasia 2021!
This was something brewing in my head for a while, so I was thrilled to explore Black women in a monstrous role. I wanted to reach back and reveal how Black women are seen in general and apply those perceptions to some of our favourite monsters played by some of the best Black women on screen.
