On Black Friday, 1991 is set to launch. The new culture magazine/DIY zine hybrid highlights Somali fashion, music, arts, and culture. Over 120 pages, the first issue is a labor of love. Local writer Safy-Hallan Farah, who has worked with publications like Vogue and the New York Times, has organized a team of creatives who have curated content from international contributors. Filled with interviews, essays, profiles, and gorgeous photographs, 1991 showcases the Somali diaspora across the globe. You’ll be able to pick up an issue at the launch party, where host Sadeeq Ali will oversee a fun evening that includes performances by Tribal East, F., and Jija, plus a DJ set from Prol.
