Issue 01: Emergence

Feed Black Futures
with Ali Anderson

The theme of SALIMA’s first issue is emergence. It’s a noun that goes back to the Latin root emergere, meaning "bring to light". It can mean the revealing of something that was once hidden, or something rising to the surface. One may think of this in the literal sense or more metaphorically.

Emergence is how we change, how we expand, how we grow. What are the small ways we are changing & intentionally growing our capacity to embody the just and liberated worlds we long for? How do we allow the long defunct systems & ways of being to burn & what do we create in their place? With our world falling apart, how do we shape this change?*

*from adrienne maree brown’s Emergent Strategy & Octavia Butler’s Parable Of The Sower
SALIMA is the intersectional feminist magazine we need in our life! SALIMA is made by and for Black, Indigenous, people of color, queer, trans, nonbinary, low-income, folks living with disabilities, and all those most affected by–and working to take down–the white supremacist, capitalist, colonialist, ableist, cis-hetero patriarchy.

SALIMA is a place of refuge and inspiration where these perspectives are empowered, celebrated, and invested in. SALIMA works to reshape creative conversations and critical dialogue, circulating tools & ideas to help us imagine ourselves beyond isolation & scarcity thinking and towards abundance, connection, collaboration, and care. We see this offering as one more WCCW platform that supports creative production and the redistribution of resources throughout our interconnected network, all while making stylish, thoughtful, and revolutionary content available to a much wider audience.

Toni Cade Bambara said that the role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible — SALIMA is our enticing offering to the revolution.
