An important approach to diversifying representation in your courses is incorporating scholarship from Black authors. You may be asking yourself, “Where do I find these types of resources?” Luckily, the CITL is here to help! Below you will find popular journals of Black studies, primarily written by Black scholars.
The Journal of Black Studies provides scholarship about the Black and African American experience to give these communities a voice. The journal publishes six times per year, which means that there is plenty of new scholarship to discover! (access through IU Libraries)
The Journal of African American Studies examines topics on the transformations and social progress of continental Africans and individuals in the African diaspora. This journal features empirical, methodological, and theoretical manuscripts and covers a full spectrum of interdisciplinary work. (access through IU Libraries)
The Black Scholar was founded in 1969 by Robert Chrisman and Nathan Hare and it is the first journal of Black studies and research. It is a modern journal with leading scholarship. The Black Scholar also has a blog that features Twitter accounts from notable researchers! (access through IU Libraries)
