New BLAC Foundation Occasional Papers Series

The BLAC Foundation, also known as the Black Languages, Arts, and Culture Foundation, has created the BLAC Foundation Occasional Papers Series as a mechanism to help established scholars and new scholars publish their works in Africana studies, humanities, and the social sciences. The BLAC Foundation Occasional Papers Series will focus on aspects of Black languages, arts, and culture, and seek to foster a greater awareness of and appreciation for the history and culture of Black people around the world. Towards this end, the BLAC Foundation Occasional Papers Series will publish new works as well as previously published works. We welcome single discipline works as well as interdisciplinary works and multidisciplinary works. All authors will retain ownership of their copyrights. The submitted work will go through a peer-review process, which may or may not require that submission to be revised to meet scholarly standards. Dr. J. Vern Cromartie, a professor of sociology and chairman of the Sociology Department at Contra Costa College, has agreed to serve as the founding coordinator of the BLAC Foundation Occasional Papers Series. He has been a Centurion since 2015. For established scholars and new scholars who wish to have their papers considered, email a copy of your work in an APA (American Psychological Association) format and as a Times New Roman 12-point font Word document in the English language to Dr. Cromartie and Dr. Edward L. Powe, the founder of the BLAC Foundation. The email address for Dr. Cromartie is as follows: j_vern_cromartie@yahoo.com. The email address for Dr. Powe is as follows: edpowe1@hotmail.com. All works accepted for the BLAC Foundation Occasional Papers Series will appear on the website of the BLAC Foundation.
