artist francesco francavilla has paid tribute to a different black horror icon for everyday day of black history month with a portrait while also highlighting their accomplishments within the genre.
- duane jones (night of the living dead)
- danai gurira (the walking dead)
- wesley snipes (blade)
- grace jones (vamp)
- laurence fishburne (event horizon)
- angela bassett (a vampire in brooklyn)
- benjamin sherman crothers (the shining)
- naomie harris (28 days later)
- percy rodrigues (“his voice-over [in] horror movie trailers –-jaws, the exorcist–-made him the voice of horror,” francavilla notes)
- jada pinkett-smith (tales from the crypt: demon knight and scream 2)
- bolaji badejo (the literal alien in alien)
- kevin peter hall (the literal predator in predator).
five more days and i refuse to let any more of the untenable fuckery stop my joy in the remainder of black history month.
