AUTHORS: Jené Etheridge, Atoosa Moinzadeh, Imaan Ramezanzadeh, Alexandra Rawlings, Caleb Devillar-Fox, Eric Sanders, Chloe Kachscovsky, Daphne Hsu, Arista Burwell-Chen, Olivia Smiff
RELEASE: Feb. 1, 2013
ORIGIN: Seattle, WA
Created in collaboration with the University of Washington’s UW Mixed Student Association, a ”multiracial, multiethnic, transracially adopted student group.”
DESCRIPTION (from the authors): This zine is for anyone who has ever wanted to have a conversation about race and was denied that opportunity. We wanted to create an accessible space where PoCs and friends of all backgrounds could voice their opinion on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, or any issues of self-definition without fear of being invalidated or ignored.
We hope that you find something that challenges your perspective or brings awareness to a new one. But most importantly, we want you to join us in discussion and action to create a community that is more aware and accepting of both the similarities and differences among us.
"Please Tell Me More About Myself" is not only a critical outlet for people of color, but also a creative one.
READ NOW & SHARE
POCZP was told that there are print copies available. Contact the creators through their Tumblr for more information.
UW Mixed Student Association is the University of Washington’s multiracial, multiethnic, transracially adopted student group. They are “the first and only club on campus dedicated to celebrating mixed race experiences.” You do not have to identify as mixed to join, everyone is welcome!
