Kiini Ibura Salaam is a writer, painter, and traveler from New Orleans, Louisiana. The middle child of five, she grew up in a hardscrabble neighborhood with oak and fig trees, locusts and mosquitoes, cousins and neighbors. Kiini's work delves into spheres of human liberation, human connection, and evolution. She employs speculative fiction and creative nonfiction to take readers through mind-bending journeys into the transcendent, the mystical, and the fantastic.

Sheridf and Crunkadelic had the honor of interviewing two awesome speculative fiction authors, the fabulous Kiini Ibura Salaam (author of Ancient, Ancient) and Chesya Burke (author of Let’s Play White). We talk feminism, Afrofuturism, and so much more. Check out the interview.
