Recent Scholarship on the Black Experience in the U.S.

February 24, 2014 1707

As Black History Month (also known as African American History Month) comes to a close this Friday, SAGE is providing free access to a collection of articles from its Journal of Black Studies.  From Martin Luther King to black political participation to race relations to teaching African American students, these topics provide a scholarly snapshot of different aspects of black history and current issues in black studies.

The journal’s genesis dates to 1969, a year after the assassination of Martin Luther King. Future editors Robert Singleton and Molefi Kete Asante had been students at UCLA and Asante had recently been appointed as a professor in communication and director of the UCLA Center for African American Studies in 1969 when the Journal of Black Studies was launched. Singleton was made chair of the journal’s editorial board and went on to complete his doctorate in economics. Asante remains one of JBS’ editors-in-chief.
