If you haven’t already heard about the People of Color Zine Project, it’s time to check them out. They are based out of The Bronx, NY and exist to make zines by people of color more accessible. They are planning a national tour for the fall that will be passing through New Orleans in October and they need our help to make it happen. Please come to this benefit show for the POC Zine Project at Big Top on Thursday Sept. 12th!

Editor’s Note: A “Community Submission” post results from POC folk submitting their own zine to be featured on the POC Zine Project Tumblr. If you would like to share your zine with the POC Zine Project community, here’s how to do it.

When you submit, feel free to add some background, a description of your work and art and your mission statement. If you just send us the name of your zine, we’ll simply link back to a source for purchasing it and use the language you already have on your site.

As long as the zine was created/co-created by a person of color, we will always share Community Submissions. Enjoy!
