Upon researching & finding no positive definition of an Urban/Ghetto/Hood environment, we have decided to define it on our own:
Urban/Ghetto/Hood: an environment or people (often yet not always black) influenced by oppressive circumstances thus creating alternate survival practices to combat oppression – often producing culturally creative language, music, art, and performances that empower its population while often terrifying outsiders. Urban/Ghetto/Hood works aim to heal, celebrate, encourage reflection, call out, clap back, over come, & prove skill.
Wusgood Mag seeks to ask/answer questions within urban conversations.
Wusgood Mag seeks to show & tell experiences seen as Ghetto or Hood in the mainstream, but are everyday encounters for the artists.
Wusgood Mag seeks artists who aren’t visible in the mainstream, urban artists, & artists who desire to find a home that refuse to entertain cultural or artistic appropriation.
Wusgood Mag’s vision is to develop a longstanding sustainable space for underserviced urban artists to have their work published and shared publically. Beginning digitally, Wusgood hopes to grow into an online & print magazine that pays contributors and staff.
