Carolyn Saulson: An Iconoclast

A zine honoring Carolyn Saulson, a Bay Area African American and Disability Rights community activist who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer affecting African Americans at a rate twice that of the general population, on August 10, 2009. The zine features artwork, writing, collaging and photography by Carolyn, her daughter, award-winning horror author Sumiko Saulson, her granddaughter, beat poet Franchesca Saulson, and fellow disabled artists Kat Fury, Serena Toxicat, and Beth Johnson. It has facts and highlights about the rare blood cancer, about her fight against it, her life, her art, and her work with the communities she serves. Funded by the Ara Jo Memorial Fund through the East Bay Zine Festival in 2018.
