"It might come as a shocker (or maybe not) that this is the first zine that I have ever created. During the summer of 2016, I was blessed to work at the High Museum which is located in Atlanta, Georgia. They have a very wonderful Teen Team program and all of the folks on their team are the best artists that I have ever encountered in my life. Before I left for my first semester at the College of Wooster, I wrote a story for a local newspaper called VOX ATL on internalized racism. When I got to Wooster, I quickly learned about the school’s Anti-Racist Collective. We got together, got some submissions, and made a zine all about internalized racism. As an intersectional feminist, it was important to me that this zine not only be intersectional but also cover a large topic within a small amount of pages. The conversations that my zine was sparking was a bit overwhelming at times because I truly never expected something that I created to cause small surges of progression. This zine was created in the span of ten hours and features work from a few friends of mine here on campus. The folks in the Anti-Racist Collective have been some of the most wonderful people I have met here on campus and they all work towards being a wonderful ally to all marginalized groups. I hope that you all enjoy my first zine and I plan on creating more. Perhaps I can major in zines or just go forth with my philosophy major." - Sharah Hutson
