About Freshphiles

Freshphiles is a Brooklyn-based digital alt-weekly magazine for those who can rock with both The xx and Xscape, the ratchet and the revolutionary. We aim to be your indie source for commentary on all things fresh in art, culture, race and politics. Plus a local guide for ish to do on the weekend…or weeknight if you’re about that life.

We are also happy to introduce our weekly newsletter, The Stay Woke Weekly. Curated by Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Malaika Jabali, TSWW includes everything you can expect in Freshphiles + a special focus on race and social justice commentary and news. Even if black lives aren’t trending, we still gotta ‘stay woke.’ A new issue delivered straight your inbox every Thursday. Subscribe here, fam.

What We Gettin Into: July 15-17, 2016

  • The Flourish Partygallery exhibition + DJ set at Kinfolk 94 on Friday night
  • Brooklyn Hip Hop FestivalIt’s the finale concert on Saturday with Nas n dem.
  • This DJ is hosting her set of “occasions”–a fancy name for her music set in NYC on Friday and also up the river at the Dia museum on Sunday in Beacon. Beacon is a dope town anyway so might be good look for a lil day trip.
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SOCIAL JUSTICE ORGANIZATION

Hashtagtivism is cool (for real, we love a good Black Twitter dragging), but do you want to do more? There are organizations around the country working in both policy and advocacy to create systemic change. Here are some doing good work. We will continue to update this list, and if you have recommendations for other organizations hit us up on the form below.
