Thank you for your interest in contributing to Taji Mag! Our mission is to provide the Black community with positive images of Black Beauty, Fashion, and Family as well as highlight the positive efforts of those in our community and provide information on health and wealth specific to our needs. All content needs to fit within this criteria. All contributions must highlight a positive entity of Black culture. We are spoon fed enough of what’s wrong, Taji focuses on what’s right! <3
