The purpose of Vinyle zine is to tell our stories, our way, from our lens. Thus advancing the Black community through cultural-understanding, knowledge, and connection as an execution of The Pedagogy of Pro-Blackness.
The mission of Vinyle zine is to increase the cultural literacy of Black Speculative Arts through empowering Black voices to expressively write, and then intentionally read these stories in a shared public setting with intentions to connect (workshops, zine, showcase).
The concept behind Vinyle zine is to give Black people the chance to share personal truths through any literary form --song, poetry, fiction / non-fiction-- which will open the door to nourishing the expressive soul of our culture, while using writing as an outlet. Channeling emotions through writing helps to manage stress, express tribulations, and extol a cultural manifesto to relate to others in the African diaspora.
Vinyle aims to maximize Pro-Blackness through culture-to-business networking in the Black community, and create authentic work which embodies culture. Vinyle zine works to foster a new generation of how creators create, and cultivate a meaningful environment in our journal for how artists articulate their souls.
Read why Chief KRF vehemently pursues literature as a means of redefining writing as a way for Black people to express ourselves in this form of art.
