Who we are

Black Josei Press LLC is a publishing company that specializes in amplifying comic books and merchandise by and for Black and Brown women. 


We aim to increase the amount of comics by and for Black and Brown women by carving a space for them in the community.


BJP is founded and run by Jamila Rowser in May 2018, with its debut award-winning comic, Wash Day, illustrated by Robyn Smith. Jamila launched BJP out of necessity to publish her comic, but also with the plan of publishing other comic for women of color.
