ZINE SPOTLIGHT: Race Riot 2 [NOW AVAILABLE AS A FREE DIGITAL ZINE!]
CREATOR: Mimi Thi Nguyen
RELEASE: 2002
DESCRIPTION: Mimi Thi Nguyen’s Evolution of a Race Riot (1997) is a huge compilation zine featuring writers of color who are affiliated with the punk and riot grrrl scenes. The pieces analyze racism, and privilege in the largely white populations of activist, feminist, punk and zine communities, and discuss isolation and homogeneity. There are articles and comics by American Indians, Asian Americans, African Americans, Filipinos, and Latinos.
The second issue of the compilation series, Race Riot 2, was released in 2002.
Thanks to a donation from POCZP member Mimi Thi Nguyen, POC Zine Project was able to scan Race Riot 2 and make it available online as a free e-zine.
Here is Race Riot 2's digital debut, enjoy! <3

You can purchase print copies of both zines at POC Zine Project events in 2013, as well as through our allies, For The Birds Feminist Collective + Distro.
If you haven’t already read Evolution of a Race Riot (issue one in the compilation series), we’ve got you covered. Yup, we scanned it in 2011! Enjoy it below:

We’re thrilled that the Evolution of a Race Riot digital zine was read over 7,000 times so far <3 We hope that people continue to read and share Race Riot #1 and #2, now that we’ve made both available to access online.
POC Zine Project’s mission is to make zines by people of color easy to find, distribute, and share. We’re an experiment in activism and community through materiality.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The original Race Riot 2 included an extensive, if partial, project directory of zines past and present made by people of color (not included in the above digital zine). POC Zine Project will release the Race Riot Project Directory as a free digital zine in 2013.
