Vol 1 of Taji Mag released on December 7th of 2014 by Editor & Principal Photographer, NayMarie, and has quickly grown to be a symbol of unapologetic Blackness. Taji was launched to fill the void of positive news surrounding the Black community in mainstream media. After Mike Brown was wrongly executed and placed on display for the world to watch, the Black community rallied together. Most wanted to ‘shop Black’ but few knew where to begin. 9 days later, NayMarie started a group, the Black Owned Business Collective (later forming into Our Black Web with partner, Will Focus), and quickly discovered the depth of Black businesses and amazing stories that needed to be shared. Combining this with her passion as a photographer, Taji Mag was solidified on November 1st and released a month later. Conceptualized in New York, Taji has readers and a tribe across the global African diaspora.
