The first publication of its kind at BU, Charcoal publishes student-submitted artwork along with our own original content bi-annually, including articles and photo essays. Charcoal is independent of SAO, for the time being, and a 100% student-run venture. Following our launch and the overwhelmingly positive response to our first issue, Mirrors, we are finalizing our second issue, Sweet and beginning the creative process for our third issue, Sankofa. Charcoal aims not only to promote student artists of color by publishing their work, but also to jumpstart that collaborative artistic community already thriving on other college campuses. We want to create a space for student artists of color to come together, to get to know each other, and to realize that other people like them exist. By publishing their stories and sharing them with the greater BU community we ultimately strive to create a platform for underrepresented voices.
