The 4th day of International Zine Day is also the national holiday of the USA. That’s why today’s prompt says:
“July 4 – AmeriZine Day!
Explore marginalized voices in America. Buy, share, and read zines about racial justice and zines written by people of color.”
Or read zines from people of colour who live elsewhere.
For this occasion, here are some online places where you can find, read about, and buy zines made by zinesters of colour:
- Zines & Ting: zines include Poor Lass, Brown Girls, Sugar Paper, …
- Jacq Applebee: zinester who writes about mental health, bi sexuality, race…
- Anna Vo: zinester and musician who writes/wrote Fix My Head, The Swan The Vulture, Mellow Yellow…
- Jacob V Joyce: artist, musician and performer who also makes (illustrated) zines about racial justice
- Brown Recluse zine distro
- POC Zine Project
- Over Here Zine Fest: Black / Asian / BAME / POC zine fest in Manchester
- 50 zines by queer people of color

- five black zine lives
- Meet Me at the Race Riot: People of Color in Zines from 1990 – Today: video
- Beyond ‘Meet Me at the Race Riot’: People of Color in Zines (1990-Today): video
Of course there are many more poc zinesters and zine projects out there but this can be a starting point.
