Victoria College - 361-573-3291

Octavia Butler was born in 1947 in Pasadena, California, and “struggled for decades when her dystopian novels exploring themes of Black injustice, global warming, women’s rights and political disparity were, to say the least, not in commercial demand.” (

Unfortunately, her incredible literary work only started receiving recognition around the time of her death, in 2006.

Kindred is a gripping tale about a young African-American woman who is transported from her home in 1976 to the pre-Civil War era to save the slave owner of her ancestors to ensure her own existence.

Today, Octavia Butler is celebrated across the country, with over 200 universities and colleges exulting her life through the teachings of her works.
