Citizen is a new kind of annual magazine.

In 2017, the idea for Citizen magazine was born out of the desire to see something that does not quite exist, an independent magazine documenting the culture at large through the words of Black thinkers and the lenses of Black creatives, a beautifully designed record of the zeitgeist  that one could sit with and learn from each time they parted the pages.

By us, for everyone.
