Even more timely? Last night, being the sci-fi nerd I am, in watching Lovecraft Country last night many pointed to how Lovecraft Country included several images such as the tribute to Gordon Park’s 1956 photograph outside a department store in Mobile, Alabama demonstrating the only to recent segregated past of the United States.
