The horror genre belongs to everyone. Fear is a universal emotion, and all kinds of people are drawn to the pleasures of dread. Now, as we live in a time of division and as people take to the streets to declare their shared humanity, we must make space for people of color to express themselves. Black lives matter, and black horror creators are important to the genre.

It has become a springboard for young creatives to show off their work. Artists, writers, directors, and others have put their work online.
