15 Zines by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Colour) Authors

Every month Book Club for Masochists: A Readers’ Advisory Podcasts chooses a genre at random and we read and discuss books from that genre. We also put together book lists for each episode/genre that feature works by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Colour) authors to help our listeners diversify their readers’ advisory. All of the lists can be found here.

Zines listed below without an author were created by multiple authors, groups, or collectives. Find even more zines by BIPOC creators via Brown Recluse distro and Indigenous Action.
