If I Ruled The World, Press Press, Baltimore, MD
Presented by Press Press with support from BmoreArt, is a publication that takes inspiration from the Nas classic, "If I Ruled The World" (It Was Written, 1996), in order to facilitate artistic collaborations and conversations between a range of Baltimore-based creatives and activists. In their responses, contributors present their most positive visions of the world, and by doing so are able to thoughtfully analyze and investigate the nuances within the struggle for equity in our city and the active role of artists within the pursuit for social change.
You Come From The Stars, Black People by Jared Brown and Khadija Nia Adell
is a zine highlighting social differences that challenge us in our day-to-day lives— gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, age, culture and so on. It is a testimony of truth, fiction, and everything in-between while addressing struggle and oppression in it’s various forms. These stories, investigations, and artworks are written and illustrated by folks who are, for the most part, based in Baltimore.
