Since 1969, THE BLACK SCHOLAR has been satisfying advertisers at colleges and publishing houses around the nation. Our journal is widely read by activists, teachers, professionals, and intellectuals.
We post ads for academic/teaching positions, non-profits*, conferences, and administrative jobs. We also welcome ads for Black arts projects, and relevant book releases. All ads posted on our website will also be shared across our social media outlets.
