After nearly five years of showcasing groundbreaking and emerging talent in music and lifestyle, Beyond Race Magazine (BRM) is on the verge of shutting down operations. One last chance at saving the magazine in its current form is its audience and followers.

We are in full support of Beyond Race Magazine... stay strong, things are going to turn around and your mag will strive in the future.

BRM presents “Not Without A Fight”: A series of benefit shows to save Beyond Race Magazine

With continued cuts to print advertising and limitations due to a lack of consistent revenue, BRM is poised to follow along the lines of other publications that have had to reinvent themselves in order to continue operating. “The economic landscape in the magazine publishing area is slowly repairing itself, but not enough to support the longevity of a nationally distributed publication,” said David Terra, Publisher of BRM.

With the goal of "keeping the doors open," by hopefully raising enough money to continue operating, BRM has launched a fundraising campaign through its website ( and is hosting a couple of benefit concerts called “Not Without A Fight.”

A number of artists have reached out in support of the publication, including a statement from KRS-One's camp expressing, "We are in full support of Beyond Race Magazine... and will send a donation on behalf of KRS-One and the Temple of Hip-Hop. Stay strong, things are going to turn around and your mag will strive in the future."

Both shows are taking place at Santos Party House: 96 Lafayette St, NY, NY 10013; p: 212.584.5492
