"Met on the Williamsburg bridge because her newest novel the city became an important scene here you mean the opening of your forthcoming book you have set up on this bridge a giant tentacled bioluminescent inter dimensional creature tear it apart basically yeah well I mean no one can see it except for a few select individuals for reasons that will become clear in the book but you know it's just sort of is a giant tentacled it smashes out of no where shatters half the bridge causes massive destruction and damage all over the East River and no one really knows why except for a few people but what it means is that half this beautiful bridge gets torn apart and smashed into the water and I laughed while I did it we ducked into a bar on the Brooklyn side of the bridge to talk out of the way not just for us science fiction is transporting it's whimsical you can go in many different directions it can be apocalyptic to say that you're interested in science fiction opens up the question what kind of a kid interested you and in which of these directions you feel yourself being pulled as a reader I really didn't start to engage with science fiction until I kind of hit my teens and started to find different voices out there Octavia Butler Ursula Glynn stories that also range beyond the very traditional confines but I had seen for fantasy and science fiction at that point and I wanted to kind of know what else fantasy could do and then along comes the Clinton who was doing it before it was cool you mention that it took awhile to find some of these other authors and my understanding is that was an accidental because science fiction publishing in the news when you were a reader as a kid in the eighties and almost went out of its way to mask the identity of writers of color yeah Octavia Butler's don is an example both down to where yeah the protagonist is described in the book as a tall very dark skinned black woman with like a cloud of hair and I don't think Butler ever actually uses the word black but there's so many other indicators in there and then the addition put a white woman with black hair on the cover and there were no author photos of of Butler and there was no mention in her bio in that addition that she was black it really was like him and yet despite all the attempts to hide it I realize basically within the first few pages on my god I think she's black and that was just like earth shattering this cultural invisibility that the system of publishing engendered had a personal impact on you because when you were as I understand it growing up and thinking about considering possible careers for yourself in initially reading or writing be possible to make it work yeah yeah I mean I that was coming from a lot of different directions I don't wanna make it sound like it's coming strictly from within the industry you know I can remember having conversations with relatives other than my father about the fact that I I love to write and you know them then handing me a Toni Morrison book and saying do you write like this and I said no you know the the response was always will you need to write like this you need to write realist mainstream oriented fiction that will you know kind of focus on and life in America today is a black person or oppression or something like that and I was just like but I want to write about black people in space and a new for for a lot of times when I would say that the response would be well you can and why in the black community think that was the case I mean you you it is it is the nature of any group of people that you I understand you are capable of what you see role models operate on lots of levels and if you never see a black person in a particular space then you get the really clear message that you're not welcome in that space and so I got that message loud and clear when I was young and I was like you know what I'm gonna be a counselor I'm going to grad school for psychology you know the writing is a fun hobby but it's clear that the field is not one that that I can be successful in without you know a lot of trouble in drama and stress and I don't know that I want that in my life and then you know basically I had a point where I realized I was just not happy you know the writing bug had been in me since I was a child I'd always done it I'd read many books that had been published that I felt you know I can I can do I can do at least that good and you know I I had a point where I decided that it was worth the danger or were the the trouble in the stress and drama a minute sure has been some trouble in stress syndrome you know the rewards have been commensurate when Jennison talks about the trouble in the stress and the drama she's partly referring to a backlash from conservative science fiction writers and readers among them people associated with the all right they claim and this will sound familiar but the success of non white authors in women in science fiction has somehow been undeserving of form of identity politics it's been very very ugly and Jamison's new book the city we became addresses the legacy of racism in the genre in fact the book that's coming out in March continues to speak to those issues in some ways so one of the inspirations for the city we became was the controversy surrounding the world fantasy award until maybe two or three years ago the world fantasy award was the stylized bust of H. P. Lovecraft head and the controversy about this started when a black writer Nerio core for his friend of mine ninety one in the world fantasy award and they handed her love crafts head and she was like you can find her words online about it she did she most definitely pointed out that love craft is in an appropriate way to honor a black writer success let's just say so who is H. P. Lovecraft case in love craft is probably one of the most seminal writers in American modern fantasy you know he wrote at the turn of the century but a lot of the ways in which American fantasy no American horror engages with sub cultures cult religion and so forth were all influenced by love craft so you saw in a sort of sinister cults that had taken over towns and there's echoes of that in the Stepford wives for example you saw tentacle monsters that sort of didn't come at you roaring or screaming but sort of slithered into your life and integrated themselves into your community and then slowly destroyed you from within you see aspects of that in things like aliens hung you know in in the alien films so you know Lovecraft may not be very well known but you see elements of love craft in nearly all dark fantastical American media these days so he's that influence and he was exceptionally racist love craft has a poem and I cannot speak the title because I don't use the N. word but the title of the poem is on the creation of in words and his cat was named the N. word and he was like even by the standards of of the racist era in which he lived he was huge hello racist there is a way to separate whatever his creativity whatever skills were at evoking Harmer from his feet from his biases know his body issues were the basis of this horror the monsters came from his own fear of brown people of immigrants of Jewish people of whatever in several of his stories particularly when set in New York love crafts spends a lot of time sort of lavishes description on how terrifying it is to do something like walk through Chinatown and look at the use alien and frightening faces speaking in this terrible language and you feel his fears you read these passages you feel this discussed you feel his his unease at being surrounded by people who don't look like him there's a scene in the city we became in which of the minions of the woman in white the woman in white being the chief manifestation of these aliens that come to invade New York City yeah it is in effect the embodiment of the Lovecraftian tend to be less than the protagonists are taking on yeah this is the antagonist of the story the woman in white has many forms and many faces and one of the ways through which she works is through like minded people who she infects with her ideology literally in some ways some cases and so she is in fact a group of artists who call themselves the old her teeth and who set to one of the characters this painting called dangerous mental machines and aim Tang you didn't make up the title that painting that that's something that comes from love crap yeah dangers mental machines is what he called Chinese Americans because he believed that Asian people were equivalent to white people because they at least knew how to work and make money but he didn't think that they have souls he thought that they were machines that could get regretted calculation but there was no humanity in there no I remember this passage of the book he is vivid in my mind because you described the painting as both being incredibly seductive of it being beautiful in fact one of the the chief protagonists almost falls into a trance while looking at it it's good it's good art even though it has this undeniably horrific component to it yeah and it's it's you know I mean I I'm not good at sort of analyzing my own work but would love craft the balance in the the struggle is always between appreciating the fact that there's some good stuff here he does some incredible images powerful work but it's frightening it's frightening not always for the reasons that he meant it to be frightening it's frightening because it's a way to look into the mind of a true Beckett and realize just how alien they're thinking it was just how disturbing their ability to dehumanize their fellow human beings is this man literally saw the people of New York as monsters so that's what I decided to write against and so what do you think as a society or community of readers the response to love craft should be today to have to put in a box and and on down no no this year there's too much to learn from examining that tension between the power in the impact of the art in realizing where that art comes from and what the the impetus behind that art is the best way to engage with twisted or otherwise problematic art in my opinion is to first off it knowledge that that art has an impact hurts people and understand that engaging with it could perpetuate some of the harm that that art is is capable of doing but flag it worn it put it off to the side where people you know can engage with it at their leisure at their choice we're at a point where they're strong enough or capable of doing so but then engage with there's a line between respecting the work and honoring the person you can respect the craft you have to put that person on a pedestal you know artists are human beings and that means you need to examine them in all their assets you have to recognize that these are people and that the things that make them sometimes horrible people sometimes the things that make them good writers good artists and that's what you want to engage in Cajun missin.

"It helps us understand other places to thank you so much for being here and also for diving in on the L train discussion. Absolutely. Thanks for having me. Your native New Yorker. How'd you come to learn about spur? Absolutely. And I think that's really a big part of the the way that I came to learn about spirit. So I grew up in New York, I have a huge affection for it. I really care about the city. I teach about urban studies. This is what I do all the time and grew up going to the Lower East Side with my family, you know, kind of. Harking back both sides of my family have connections to the lary side. And at one point it was starting right? When I started to teach at the new school. I was starting to talk with MARCY Regan who was part of an organization called city lore at the time. And we were thinking more. What would it look like to develop a class where there's a partnership around kind of community work and thinking about making things public at the same as thinking about what does that look for pedagogy around understanding cities? And she said, well, Amy has a great idea, and I love to collaborate with you. But you know, the only thing I have going on right now is as crazy spur situation. And I was explorer Spurs situation. What's what's that? And so this is two thousand eight and we took a long walk from the new school to to the corner of grand and ethics and on the way, she told me potted history basically of this site and the ways in which she had started getting involved in and collaborating with an organization called good old law. Uri side, which is also known as goals. Yeah. It's been a long-term activists on housing around the Lower East Side. And when we arrived at the corner of grand and ethics. And as I've been listening to the store and going wait what? And then wait tell me wit when that happened. We got there. And I thought I've been here million times. How do I not know this story, and that was really part of the thing that drove me to think a lot more deeply about the site and to commit a lot of years of my life to to working with it and working on it because it was so such a powerful story and such an important story. But also one the it's not just me that didn't know about it. But that many people unless you were really quite directly affected. It wasn't a well known story, and yet, it's such a complicated. One and one that really touches on the stories of lots of parts of New York, and it points to all the issues just like just all right? One big bowl you quote and activists is saying unless it's written it never happened. This is very significant. When you think about how it relates to discriminations, particularly in this case. Absolutely. Absolutely. And it's one of the things that really also kind of helped me keep going and writing the book is thinking about well, what are the po- the points of you know, what's the point of writing a book about this? You know, what's the point of my writing a book about it? What's the point of doing work around it and part of it really is to kind of have this story be out in the world as opposed to being only known by people who've lived at an experienced it, that's incredibly important and powerful that people have lived and experienced it and stay involved and invested in it. But also, how do we make that more public? So that people really understand what happened at spa. And so that even in this moment where you know, very big and shiny new buildings are being built there. What happens? So the there's. Not an eraser of both the history of why those buildings were torn down in the first place, but also the multiple levels of history discrimination and really long term and incredible activism that happened since then so that those things aren't erased, and we don't forget about those things, and we don't lose the pot way that that helps us understand the rest of the city. All right. Let's do a little timeline for the Lower East Side was landing point for many immigrant groups in the nineteenth and twentieth century. So at that time the clearing of the buildings who is living in this neighborhood. Sure. So the the site was declared a an urban renewal site in nineteen sixty seven and at that time in this particular swath of the neighbor who was about fourteen square blocks pretty large area of solidly packed tenement buildings. It was incredibly diverse neighborhood, mostly lower income people of color, but incredible diversity in that group. And also groups of holocaust survivors as well. So you have these people who had been refugees after World War Two had settled back in the neighborhood. So it wasn't always this kind of older generation of people who'd live on the lower side, but newer immigrants of all different kinds coming to the Laurie side, very significant Puerto Rican population at Seward park, and that there was a very people talk about it as an incredible neighborhood that they've never really experienced since and you might be kind of tempted to see that as like a sort of a pass looking back kind of nostalgia. Like, it was also much better. And we all got along and all that kind of thing. But what's interesting about that is that because there's so much historical record and court cases and discrimination, and and sort of lawsuits brought around the kind of housing and discrimination that happened on the later we actually can see pretty closely about census records and court records of who was there. And what the racial breakdown was. And so there was a very significant group of. Number of families who were Puerto Rican. But also African American also Jewish white and also a smaller number, but certainly president of Asian families who were there. It was really at the beginning of this at sixty seven was really the beginning of kind of the emergence of Chinatown in that area. So there's a smaller number of Asian families therapy, but really kind of significantly diverse and really integrated as a as as those blocks. So why was it decided that this area needed to be cleared, and renewed which a lot of people they say urban renewal and you hear urban removal. That's absolutely. And I think that was one of the things that many people talk about as urban renewal people alternately talk about it as a negro renewal right or remove. All right. And so that was that was a phrase used at the time, and it was certainly applicable in this situation. Right people also talk about it as the Tino removal, right? And so. So those things are real and those were part of urban renewal across the board. It's not specific to spur. It's one of the many things that happened across New York City and across the country and the ways in which this kind of vast movable removal of people was really deployed in neighborhoods of color, and where people often didn't have the chance to kind of mobilize and fight back against it wasn't the name of what was it just progress in the name of progress, certainly, and you know, I mean so at the time so this so all of this is under the auspices of the slum the slum clearance committee with fantastic name already are kind of like going crazy led by Robert Moses, also intersecting with one of his other projects, which was the lower Manhattan expressway. So he had big plans for taken out part of this neighborhood for an expressway that would cut across all of lower Manhattan, kind of connecting off of the Williamsburg bridge. And also that this would be a site of. New housing. So on one hand, there's this idea that meant, you know, urban renewal had been used in many many ways across the city. And made want some things that we could argue are incredibly important contributions to the city, right? We can also look at the kinds of displacement that those those developments serve wrought, but it also did develop some of our largest amounts of affordable housing, particularly affordable. Like ownership housing co op housing, so those were also built through urban renewal. The thing that happened up spur on part of the reason that you know, part of the reason that people left was they were promised the right to come back. And they said, you know, we're going to build enough apartments for all of you to be able to return, right? There was an it's talked about in this way as a right to return, and that was part of the deal of leaving the people would be temporarily relocated and be able to come back and part of what happened at Spiro was that the way that urban renewal functions is that the city doesn't redevelop a say, they have a sponsor and that person that organization is the kind of there the develop. Of the site. The developer of the site was supposed to be the United United housing federation which had developed many other urban renewal sites for moderate income co-ops often around the city just on the other opposite side of grand street. They had developed those had done a lot of work in the Bronx as well. So had had this real history of building housing that was affordable. But they at some point for many reasons decided they would pull out before the buildings were demolished. And so the city went ahead in in starting in sixty seven and sixty eight to demolish buildings without having a sponsor to build anything to replace them. So that's part of the tragedy of spirit is that not only does it kind of pull up all these questions about displacement and who's being displaced? But also these questions of the fact that people were being displaced. Without really any promise of what was going to come to be able to to be a place for them to come back to let it be clear was there ever affordable housing for them to come back to ever built. Yes. Yes. In bits and pieces. Okay. So very certain people were welcome back, right. So you know, the plot as soon as you go forward with that. Yes. So the first sponsor to build housing on that site was d New York City housing authority so nature to build two buildings of public housing on that site, which is called the Seward park extension buildings and one of them. And are they exist today? They're they're one of them is on between Delancey and Broome and the others on the corner of grand and Essex and those two buildings when they were built people were very excited about them. You know, they were going to be modern apartments many of the tournaments that were torn down. They weren't in great condition or like, okay, you're gonna give me like a a better looking house. Like, okay. I would go for that. Many of those apartments that were built in sewer parks. You know, they were they were very nice apartments. Everything worked was all great. There were elevators. You know, wasn't Walk-ups. And people were promised that they would have the priority to come back. And so people started to do that they say, okay, I'm gonna come to the the rental office. I'm gonna try and lease these apartments. And what people were finding was that families of color were turning up. And they were saying, okay. Here's my proof. This is where I lived. I want one of those apartments and they were saying, Aw, I'm sorry. They're all rented and people started to notice that there was a pattern the the majority of families who were getting apartments in those two buildings were white and Jewish. Did they give a reason why oh they well later in the court cases that were brought against him. I'm very significant reasons why and which only really evolved through kind of direct action, and the kind of, you know, people taking over the rental offices, having sit ins, really vital and important kinds of activists work that was happening there and one of the arguments that nature made at the time was they really Rian -scribed in the court cases was this idea of of a tipping point that they argued that were they to let the people of color who had lived there before return. There would be this notion that it would be too many colored people in the neighborhood and would tip the neighborhood, and it would lead to this notion of white flight, right? And so all which on all of that language is part of the way that they talked about it in those court cases. And so these are the legal documents in which nature was trying to defend that. Defend the decisions that they had made about who..
