POC Zine Project put ‘Evolution of a Race Riot’ online!

The POC Zine Project recently made Evolution of a Race Riot (#1) available as an e-zine. This seminal work was first released in August of 1997 and was compiled by Mimi Nguyen.

ZineWiki describes the Race Riot comps below:

Evolution of a Race Riot was two compilation zines and a third zine listing projects, zines, and resources for people of color who were/are involved in punk rock and punk culture.

Compiled by Mimi Nguyen, these zines were thick and contained writings from a diverse roster of activistswriters and artists who addressed issues of racism in punk culture, invisibility, class issues, and the ever popular (and offensive) “I don’t see you as (asian/black/latino/etc.).”

While this is no longer published, it is a crucial and critical document for POC involved in the subcultural terrain of DIY publishing, music, art, and culture. There has been nothing comparable since this was compiled and published.

DISCLOSURE: Oh, Mija (Daniela Capistrano) is the founder of POC Zine Project.
