ZORA is a publication by, for and about women of color and our experiences. We are interested in well-researched stories and personal essays about living, loving, spirituality, relationships, pop culture, history, motherhood, daughterhood and analysis of current events. Humor must be labeled as such. Credit and annotations are recommended when listing historical facts and quotes taken from newspapers or other media.
