Blade Runner 2049

In 1968, author Philip K. Dick penned the novel titled Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which in 1982 became the basis for the movie Blade Runner. Since that time, both the book and the film have become celebrated works in science fiction in both literary and cinematic canons. But the accolades alone aren’t what make the story great. It’s the realism of artificial intelligence that enchants us.


When I think about Thurgood Marshall, my first thoughts are of his involvement in Brown v. Board of Education. Then I remember that he was a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. But hardly ever do I recall that before he became the historical figure that I see him as today, he was just a man doing the tedious, often thankless work of social justice.
