In recent years, punk and riot grrrl have become the subject of much retrospection and analysis (there are easily a score of scholarly and popular monographs, documentaries, and exhibitions completed or in progress). This retrospective turn, with its subsequent institutionalization of some stories about punk and riot grrrl and not others, has largely failed to center race as a crucial factor, or to observe punks of color as a vital but also a discomforting presence.
POC Zine Project interrupts this void.
Join POC Zine Project members Cristy C. Road, Osa Atoe, Mariam Bastani, Suzy X, Tomas Moniz and POCZP founder Daniela Capistrano as they reunite after the 2012 Race Riot! Tour at L.A. Zine Fest. POCZP members will present a multimedia reading and discussion, as well as answer questions about their experience traveling to 14 cities and six universities on the Race Riot! tour, strategies for building community, and more.
There will be time after the panel to purchase merch from POCZP in the Moth Theatre.
