ABOUT TOWN: The Hycide Magazine Party — September 7

@hycidemag had plenty of reasons to celebrate its first year!

Previous issues

Again, it’s worth shouting out Hycide Magazine founder Akintola Hanif, editors Fayemi Shakur and Carrie Stetler, and contributing editor Michael Gonzales on the success of the first year of the magazine. MoCADA was packed on Friday as a diverse crowd came out to celebrate the magazine at its first year of highlighting photography at the intersection of subculture, street life and social justice. The magazine provides a substantive and visually stunning look at aspects of black life that don’t always get seen and, quite frankly, are often marginalized.

Again, congrats to all involved.  We’re looking forward to seeing more from this publication.
