Mixed Mag - an Online Multimedia Publication dedicated to promoting creatives of color and celebrating our multiethnic/ multicultural voices
WELCOME FROM THE TEAM
We’re so excited that you’ve landed here and we can’t wait for you to dive into these incredible stories. We promise to make this short. On June 1st, 2020, the country erupted in protest over the death of George Floyd. While the #BlackLivesMatter protests of 2020 garnered more media attention than those of 2015 and the years following, the fight for Black Liberation is not one that originated this year. It’s a struggle that’s been going on since the birth of this country. As biracial artists, we asked ourselves, what is our role in the Black Liberation movement? What is our responsibility and how can sharing our experience contribute to the understanding of race and identity in the United States?
Mixed Mag was born out of our collective attempt to put these conversations to paper, to decolonize the magazine space and create a virtual gathering place where intersectional stories are celebrated. In addition to highlighting the intersections of race, gender, and identity, we want to shed light on international political issues, and celebrate multiculturalism in music, creative writing, health/sex/wellness, food, TV/Film/Theatre, and the arts.
Our contributors have wowed us with their creativity, their vulnerability, and their ability to put truth to paper. We are excited to bring you Issue 2 and continue growing our creative community!
