The first year the focus for Ujima Magazine was to reach the community. We wanted our readers to know we were new in Austin and we wanted to be a platform for the Black community. The magazine included many great shares and tips on wine and gave recommendations to our readers. When looking for a fundraiser, we decided to have a wine tasting event. Alphonse Dodson, of Centenberg Vineyards, had been a featured cover story, so it was fitting to have him be apart of the event. On June 26, 2009, we introduced Ujima to the community with a wine tasting event held at the beautiful Green Pastures. It was a great success! Ujima made many wonderful new friends that evening. Thanks to Natomi Austin Blair for coordinating the event. We want to share the photos from our very first event. Enjoy the memories as we did. #ujimamagazine7yrs #birthday #celebratingthevision #community @meintheatx @lifemusicatx @paigeturna @rock_theone @ujimamagazine Embrace Your Community!
