Activists on the MelaNation team at the launch party celebrating MelaNation’s first issue, ‘agitate the administration.’ (2017)

Zines (short for “magazine”) are self-published, small circulation booklets that often deal with topics outside of the mainstream.

MelaNation is a zine by activists at BYP100 DC (Black Youth Project 100 DC) that aims to be a creative space for Black folks in the DC metro area to explore what liberation could look like in our communities.

You can read issues of the zine here, learn more about us here, and check out our blog posts about the zine and Black liberation activism below. Stay #UnapologeticallyBlack.
