#Blkgrlswurld ZINE is a small press in Harlem, NYC led by Christina Long, MFA, (Creative Director) and her younger sister Courtney Long (Sr. Editor), since 2013. The press celebrates and documents Women of Color who participate in heavy music genres like Metalcore, Hardcore, Punk and Black Metal. Interviewing bands, attending concerts and vending at zine fairs allow #Blkgrlswurld ZINE to introduce readers to new music and the diversity within music scenes.
Zines and artists’ books published by #Blkgrlswurld Zine have been collected by libraries at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art PS1, The Schomburg Center for Research On Black Culture, The Barnard Zine Library and Wasted Ink Zine Distro.
The small press accepts open submissions from anyone who supports women identifying fans & musicians in the heavy music scene. #heavygirlsloveheavymusic
