Black Life Everywhere

Black Life Everywhere Black Life Everywhere (BLE) works with creators to preserve and present nuanced representations that are expressive of Black life. We see music, film, animation, photography, poetry, interviews and writing as integral to how we communicate and tell stories. For us, these varying forms of expression are legitimate and necessary instruments to produce freedom dreaming that moves us towards Black liberation. BLE seeks to amplify Black creative voices that center the lives, histories, and well being of the Black communities we engage. Our goal is to show the nuance, beauty, challenges, and joy that constitute Black Life Everywhere, today.

We are a digital magazine rooted in Black leftist feminism and the belief that narrative shifts are necessary, pivotal and inevitable agents in bringing about social and institutional transformation. Our interdisciplinary magazine springs from the recognition that radical movements have emerged primarily through youth centered organizing, and sees cultural organizing as an educational tool aiding in the production of strategy and collaboration.

Representing a dynamic new structure and vision for community engagement and collaboration, the magazine will function as a digital and physical co-learning political and cultural organizing space that supports participants in cultivating their visions of social change. The collective and experimental archive will be a cultural resource that preserves artistic, innovative and historical community building in Black communities across the globe. At the conclusion of each issue, the reader should gain a deeper understanding of Black life in the selected city. We will gather together at the end of each issue to celebrate all we have created, all we have learned, and our love of Black people.
