If/When/How Board President Dena Robinson just published a radical new piece reimagining the Supreme Court through the lens of science fiction and literature in Ms. magazine. She writes:
“As a queer, Black, Jewish, first-generation American, I have always known that the law was never truly meant for me. As a law student, I struggled knowing that people like me were never meant to survive, let alone thrive, in this world. Enter science fiction. As a child, I lost myself in the worlds of Harry Potter, Fahrenheit 451, and Brave New World. In the years since, I have read and loved everything from Robert McCammon’s Swan Song to Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower. Science fiction revels in the opportunity to imagine new futures and dream of new worlds—something those of us doing the work or in the struggle do not often step back to do. But today, I choose to reimagine a world where the Supreme Court has an intersectional, anti-oppression lens.”
