A 1926 Brazilian sci-fi novel
predicts a U.S. election determined by race and gender.
O Presidente Negro envisions the 2228 U.S. presidential election. In that race
, the white male incumbent, President Kerlog, finds himself running against Evelyn Astor, a white feminist, and James Roy Wilde, the cultivated and brilliant leader of the Black Association, "a man who is more than just a single man ... what we call a leader of the masses."
