Greetings! I'm Anthony Rayson, who spearheads the South Chicago ABC Zine Distro. This is our 20th year of doing this and we now have over 1,200 zines we make available, overwhelmingly free to prisoners. We work directly with prisoners, publish their work and get them back into the prisons. I'd like to comment on the latest two-volume set of The Vent, put together by the brothers comprising the Papyrus Collective, who are death row inmates at San Quentin. I've been publishing their awesome work since 2008 and we now have maybe 15 different pubs of their's available, including the latest double blast Vent.
If you're into the unfiltered inner city rap echoing through the heat vents of the heartless catacombs of thy nation's death row dungeons, this is a scathing place to start! Curious about how it feels to have your father murdered by the cops? Wonder what life is like on death row because you refused to be a snitch? Check out their take on the Black Lives Matter movement! I'll tell you what! I am a regular guest on the podcast New American Dream, put out by Revolution Radio. I'm a sort of "voice of the prisoner." Every 3rd Thursday night at 7:45, I do my thing. For the next piece, I'm going to read selections from these two terrific zines.
There is wonderful artwork woven throughout both zines, many of it in color. Unfortunately, I can't afford to publish in color, but you'll catch their drift. To order these zines and a catalog listing all the others available, write me at:
South Chicago ABC Zine Distro / P.O. Box 721 / Homewood, IL 60430
Right On, Brothers! With Love, @nthony
