Living In Color
As part 6 of 12 of our annual special themed issues series, Digest magazine's "Living In Color" issue wants to know current reflections and realities concerning race, ethnicity, and color. As a country founded through violence against ethnic and racial "minorities," the USA has had a dark and twisting history and foundation through hierarchies of skin-tone and ancestry. Still today, various assumptions and stereotypes are reinforced and recreated for people of "different" backgrounds and phenotypes. Yet at the same time, often from those in power, some charge that we live in a post-racial time. What do you think? We invite academic, casual, critical, and artistic contributions for all special themed issues.
"Living in Color" comes out annually the third week of February. Our purpose in offering a broad theme is to not limit the large spectrums of topics and experiences having to do with race, color, and ethnicity. Thus, if you have something you would like to share and you believe it is connected to this theme, we are excited to hear from you.
