Zine Collection

 Collection — Container: Collection
Identifier: LIB002

Scope and Contents

The Zine Collection at the Amistad Research Center was launched in 2011 and is intended to be a continuing collection. The scope of this collection mirrors that of the Center's overall collection development policy by focusing on zines written and published by individuals of color or whose topics focus on racial and ethnic culture and history, civil rights, race relations, and related topics.

The goal of this collection is to provide a research collection that addresses the issues of diversity (and non-diversity) within the zine community, illustrates that diversity by collecting and preserving zines of color, and exists as an archive that chronicles the intersection of identify formation, self-expression, and print culture.
