Sisu Magazine | Issue 8 Unapologetically Ourselves
"We control our own narratives." ~ @the_blackfoxes
The outdoor industry doesn’t need more stories ABOUT Black, Brown, Indigenous people who love the outdoors... It needs more created BY them.
That's why for Issue 8 of Sisu Magazine, we teamed up with Christina Torres, the Editor of Cyclista Zine, and The Black Foxes, a team of Black cyclists and outdoorists, to share the experiences of cyclists who are unapologetically themselves.
There were no interviews, no opinion pieces by outsiders looking in. Each Black Fox wrote their own narrative, free of outside perspectives that have their way of shifting stories. Their powerful words speak for themselves.
What can you expect from this very special, limited edition?
