Archived Materials

The BLAC Foundation is currently accepting electronically submitted papers, videos and art dealing with all subjects from a Black perspective including cuisine, religion, health issues, literature (short stories, essays), language, linguistics, political science, culture, etc. All Papers should ideally be from 8-12 pages in length, but can be longer or shorter. The true name of the author and the title of the paper must be included. Submissions dealing with “Black Martial Arts” can still be submitted, and should minimally discuss the “what, where, when, who, how and why of the chosen art” as well as provide relevant information about the author and how the information was obtained (i.e. personal research, references and readings). “Black Poetry” and “Rap Lyric” Submissions should be original and include the name, address and personal information of the composer and his/her company. In addition to the lyrics, the submitter should provide a prose explanation of the message it transmits and the author’s reasons for composing it.

While this site neither has nor desires a chat page, the reader is encouraged to address comments or criticisms about each submission directly to the submitter and the submitter is likewise encouraged to either respond or take such responses into consideration when finalizing his / her electronic journal submission.
