First Person: A Show and Tell of Redlining and Gentrification zines from the Barnard Zine Library
Zine making is an act of resistance, rejecting the power structures of mainstream publishing, self-creating a home for marginalized and minoritized makers to take up space. Zine makers tell their stories with prose, poetry, collage, illustrations, juxtaposition. Student, part-time, and full-time staff from the Barnard Zine Library will explore zines from our collection that share creators' first hand experiences with redlining, gentrification, and other expressions of geographic racism.
This show and tell is part of Undesign the Redline @ Barnard Symposium.
Panelists: Alekhya Maram, Zine Associate BC '25; Claudia Acosta, Zine Tech; Grace Li, Zine Associate BC '24; Mikako Murphy, Zine Associate BC '22; Nayla Delgado, Zine Associate BC '24; and Jenna Freedman, Zine Librarian
