The state of women’s rights in America—exacerbated by the results of the presidential election—recalls a science-fiction scenario, from Ray Bradbury’s, 1951, “The Other Foot.” This masterpiece, of eighteen short stories contained within the award-winning “Illustrated Man,” is set in the Fifties. All African Americans have settled on Mars, after centuries of unspeakable cruelty on Earth. Twenty years have passed. Earth is in the throws of WWIII’s nuclear ruin. One white man travels to Mars to ask for African Americans’ forgiveness, along with a request for their return to Earth, to rescue the remaining (radioactive) whites. The elders want to exact revenge, but decide otherwise.
