So let’s talk Taji Mag. This is probably one of the few diamonds in the rough that is newly released (currently 1 issue and counting) and has a very direct purpose in its existence that is extremely beneficial to the black community. Taji (which is Swahili for Crown) Mag is a magazine dedicated to the exposure of various black talents, and I was lucky enough to be one of the featured talents in the VERY FIRST ISSUE!!!

The magazine held its launch on December 7th, which was showcased as an innovative launch party by Natural Beauty Photographer and Taji Mag creator “NayMarie”, owner/operator/photographer of NayMarie Photography. The event was hosted at OMhh store in Brooklyn to a very excited and extremely participatory audience. It was definitely a great event. You can actually view more of the images from the event, the sponsors and giveaways, as well as the magazine (which is available for online purchase via magcloud) over at the Taji Mag site and FB Page

In addition to all of the goodies you can find with respect to Taji and it’s content, there are opportunities for you to be featured as well! If you are a black talent or business owner of some kind and you are interested in having your content shown, feel free to contact Taji on their site and specify what you would like to potentially have featured. If you are a vendor, please feel free to also ask about vending at future events as well as becoming a potential sponsor!

Check it out and I hope to see you at the next event! There’s still time to get submissions in!
