In 2006, Osa Atoe was inspired to create an expression out of the experience of being the only Black kid at the punk show - and 'Shotgun Seamstress' was born. Like a great mixtape where radical politics are never sidelined for an easier ride, 'Shotgun Seamstress' was a fanzine by and for Black punks that expressed, represented, and documented the fullest range of being, and collectively and individually explored 'all of our possibilities instead of allowing the dominant culture to tell us what it means to be Black'. Laid out by hand, and photocopied and distributed in small batches, each issue featured essays, interviews, historical portraits of important artists and scenes, reviews, and more, all paying tribute to musicians and artists that typify free Black expression and interrupt notions of Black culture as a monolith.
