We the News: Black Immigration Narratives

In the midst of an era fueled by generalizations and incendiary rhetoric, how do we share immigrant stories in a way that is reflective and representative of their complexity and humanity? We the News aims to amplify these unique stories via physical newsstands located in small businesses around Bed-Stuy. Each newsstand will be filled with bilingual zines created by immigrants affiliated with local partnering organizations. Historically, zines have been a medium of communication within subcultures and a tool in activist movements and organizing. Via zines that focus on stories of traditions and rituals, Lizania Cruz hopes to co-create spaces of sanctuary through the use of language, personifying the role words and messages play in uniting, empowering, and building community.
