In today’s America, the increasing spread of fake news and socially acceptable discrimination are making independent publishing and spaces for people of color even more necessary than before. Polychrome Mag, a new magazine designed to showcase creatives of color and their work, is working to create a platform for creatives and change POC representation in the media. Polychrome is currently running a majorly successful Kickstarter campaign, which was funded in less than 48 hours, and is gearing up to release their first print issue. I sat down with Polychrome editor-in-chief Micah Pegues, an NYU film student and Dallas native, to talk about how the magazine started, her dream interviewees, and more.
