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 Black Youth Project 100 DC (BYP100 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.
