Join us for MAAHMG Black History Month Events.
On Saturday, February 24th, at the Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery, Baki Porter will teach a youth zine and collage workshop from 11:00am – 1:00pm for ages middle school to young adult (12-19 y/o).
A zine (short for magazine) is a small, diy-created book about any topic you can think of. In this workshop, you will create your own zine while learning about the history of African Americans in Minnesota and how the art form of self-publication is being used as a form of protest. You will be encouraged to draw, write, and/or collage to create your zines.
At the end of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to exchange some of the zines you have created with other participants!
