Check out some of the feedback we’ve received since launching Memory on May Day:
New Model Minority: “The Freshest Thing Since Honey Magazine.”
Afrolicious: “Because it’s created by Black women and for Black women, I get a distinct feeling of intimacy within a genre where we are constantly struggling to prove our worth. I feel honored to be a part of this visual conversation and elated that people showed up. It’s all rather powerful, especially as the photos are placed against each photographer’s words and phrases from authors including Kasi Lemmons, Zora Neale Hurston, Zadie Smith, Angela Shannon and Toni Morrison. “
Crunk Feminists: This digital photography mag grew out of a twitter conversation between three 20-something sisters; the first issue on “Memory” is visually stunning and showcases the diversity of Black art.
National Black Programming Consortium: “We are enjoying the inaugural issue of the online photo mag from Mambu Badu | Photography Collective. Such meaningful images, and such well chosen sparse prose, we adore it: http://bit.ly/lFacTx. And that cover speaks so succinctly to the first chosen theme of memory. Do share this!”
We couldn’t do this without your support. Thank you to everyone who has been reading the magazine and spreading the word.
We are definitely planning future calls for entry so be sure to subscribe to our posts, follow us on Twitter (@mambubadu), ‘like’ us on Facebook, and email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to stay up-to-date on the latest news from Mambu Badu.
