Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower

 

Based on the post-apocalyptic novel written in 1993 by the late Afro-futurist and science fiction author Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower is a genre-defying work that harnesses two centuries of Black music.

Written by Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon (founder of Sweet Honey In The Rock), Parable chronicles the spiritual awakening of young Lauren Olamina amidst a dystopian America wracked by the violence brought on by unrelenting greed and systemic injustice.

Exploding the form of an opera, Parable fuses science fiction, African-American spiritualism, deep insights into gender and race, and climate activism to construct a mesmerizing meditation on the future of human civilization.
