Based upon an activity that Founder Kim Jenkins would facilitate during fashion history class or during her ‘Fashion and Justice’ workshops, ‘Our Fashion History’ invites contributors to present an essay that describes 3-5 family/personal photos, ultimately bringing a diverse perspective to the narrative of fashion history.

The Fashion and Race Database believes in fairly compensating contributors for the time and considerable effort it takes to research and write original content for our publication. We do not currently offer payment for papers that have been written for school assignments, research that has been financially supported by outside institutions, or written work that has been published elsewhere. However, we welcome submissions of completed research to be considered for unpaid publication on The Fashion and Race Database, especially for current students, recent graduates, and early-career academicians.
