For nearly a decade, TRIBES Magazine
has been on a mission to support and showcase urban expression. Born out of necessity one dreary evening in Durham, North Carolina some eight years ago,TRIBES Magazine
came to life as citizen artists of the Triangle were calling out for a voice. Already the voice-giver, delivering rags and bullhorns to poets and social activists in the the nation’s capital, TRIBES creator, Leslie Cunningham
, once again answered the call. By day from her desk on the tech floor of the marketing world, Cunningham watched a network of artists and musicians, painters, poets and MCs collect around her. Her creative force drew their work and it flew into her lap- poems and rhymes, photographs and songs, cartoons and sketches and collages and dancing and essays and more- until Cunningham was overtaken by the collective power of the independent arts. Pen in hand, bobbing eagerly in a sea of blank storyboards, Cunningham sketched an outline for the first issue and, in June 2004, TRIBES Magazine
was born. Read More Now!
