Zora and Alice

There is a blog I follow called b.vikkki Vintage which 'features vintage advertising campaigns and fashion editorials from Black/African-American publications, video clips and found photographs featuring people of color from the 1950s-1960s'. I love it because she puts up a lot of stuff that you have never seen before, and would have to spend hours, days and years trying to hunt down! She got the contacts!

There have been no posts recently, but this is due to her currently freelancing at Zora&Alice which is a new blog and monthly magazine aiming to start a new conversation about black women.

Visit the site to fill out the pre-release questionnaire. They are also looking for writers to contribute, so get involved!

The Mission:

Zora&Alice magazine’s mission is to be the premier online destination for quality reporting and analysis on issues that affect contemporary, young black women. At any given time, we hope to accomplish three of the four:

  • To provide a fresh, intelligent voice for young black women
  • To empower and uplift young black women as they develop unique identities
  • To support and promote young black women as entrepreneurs, creators and pioneers
  • To wear power pumps and rule the world like the stone cold forces we know ourselves to be

About the Name:

Our name is inspired by the collection ” I Love Myself When I’m Laughing…And Then Again When I’m Looking Mean & Impressive,” an anthology of works by Zora Neale Hurston and edited by Alice Walker. Zora Neale Hurston was an iconoclast, underappreciated and condemned for her independence, whose many contributions to American literary canon would have been ignored were it not for the persistence of those she inspired, including Walker.


We’re looking for editors, writers, photographers, artists, and more to help with the launch. To learn more about contributing, click here
