THE BLACK SCHOLAR is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal providing cogent articles that help the understanding of issues of social concern to black Americans and other peoples of African descent across the world. To provide full range for the development of black thought in a climate where fora are still limited, we emphasize writings by black authors. The journal was launched in 1969 with the premise that black authors, scholars, artists and activists could participate in dialogue within its pages, “uniting the academy and the street.” Its editors have been dedicated to finding and developing new talent and continuing to publish established authors. TBS is now a refereed journal. Nonetheless, it retains its policy of publishing non-academic organic intellectuals from a variety of vocations and avocations.
TBS (ISSN 0006-4246) is published four times a year by the Black World Foundation, a non-profit educational organization, in association with Paradigm Publishers in Boulder, Colorado.
