Periodicals

In keeping with our mission to disseminate knowledge about the history of Africans and peoples of African descent, ASALH publishes three periodicals for three essential audiences: scholars, teachers, and general readers.

Journal of African American History
Founded in 1916 as the Journal of Negro History by Carter G. Woodson, the JAAH remains the "Jewel of ASALH."  It is a peer-reviewed, quarterly journal that serves the scholarly community.  Edited by V.P. Franklin, the JAAH is the premier journal in its field.

The Black History Bulletin
Established in 1937 at the urging of Mary McLeod Bethune, the Black History Bulletin serves the needs of primary and secondary educators who teach Social Studies and U.S. History. A semi-annual, peer-reviewed publication, the Bulletin is dedicated to providing innovative and culturally responsive materials that are grounded in theory and supported in practice. The materials can be used to teach our youth about the contributions of African Americans to U.S. History, the African Diaspora and the peoples of Africa. The Black History Bulletin is co-edited by Dr. Lavonne Neal of Northern Illinois University and Dr. Alicia Moore of Southwestern University. Visit the Black History Bulletin Web Page for more information.
