About this project

For "afro" women like me, there's a lack of representation of both appearance and interests in magazines that are marketed towards us.

I do not close these magazines feeling empowered, inspired or more knowledgeable than before. Rather than doing absolutely nothing to solve this issue, I vowed to be the change that I wanted to see.  I now present to you: The Afro Glitz Magazine Project.

We're women of many dreams and talents.  We love to create.  We love to build.  We love to learn. We love to inspire.

Afro Glitz will be a magazine for the creatives, beauty lovers, fashionistas, writers, health enthusiasts, science lovers and techie geeks.  In addition, this magazine will be a true reflection of its audience, allowing one to submit content to the magazine.  Each article will be presented in an artsy, high quality fashion.

Here are a couple of examples of how articles would be presented in the magazine:

Production Costs

Marketing Costs

Distribution Costs

Everyone who donates will get a mention in the first print issue of Afro Glitz.  In addition, we are giving away various items: Afro Glitz magazine, post cards, tees, tote bags and art prints.
