Pickens shows how Black speculative and science fiction authors craft new worlds that reimagine the intersection of Blackness and madness. Pickens demonstrates how the theorizations of race and disability that emerge from these works challenge the paradigms of subjectivity that white supremacy and ableism enforce.
