Zines: Elaborate Disruption and Black Creativity

“The resurgence of zinesā€”self-published limited-distributionĀ worksā€”is stemming the tide of erasure, disrupting publishing,Ā and offering creative spaces for diverse voices withinĀ marginalized communities. Remembering zines likeĀ FIRE!!,Ā created in 1926Ā and ā€œdevoted to the young negro artist,ā€ author Steven G. Fullwood will join in conversationĀ with contemporary zine creators Devin N. Morris (3 DotĀ Zine), Nontsikelelo Mutiti (Nontsi), Kevin Harry (KHzines),Ā and Jermel Moody (maple:koyo) to elaborate on their zine-making practices and impact on publishing and creativity. TheĀ program will also feature a marketplace of zines selected inĀ collaboration with Morris, Moody, and the Schomburg Shop.

FIRE!! contributors included Harlem Renaissance figures Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston and Aaron Douglas.
