in partnership with flower city noire collective
the 2022 zine (volume 4) is our first of three leaf editions, each of which will feature the community work of flower city noire collective, created in joyful collaboration with the local ethnography and archiving fellowship at the university of rochester.
this zine is a profile of flower city noire collective and documents the 2022 juneteenth community garden build that leaf fellows participated in. as always, beautiful illustration and design by miguel a. cardona. and very special thanks to mitch cohen at flower city arts center!
we’ll be officially launching noire iv on february 17th during flower city noire collective’s black femme book week. stay tuned for time and location! you can also find us at the rit zine fest on march 31st!
this project has been supported by the provost’s office and the humanities center at the university of rochester, the institute for citizens & scholars (formerly the woodrow wilson foundation), and the national science foundation.
