The Black History Bulletin is dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning in the areas of history. Its aim is to publish, generate, and disseminate peer-reviewed information about African Americans in U. S. history, the African Diaspora generally, and the peoples of Africa. Its purpose is to inform the knowledge base for the professional praxis of secondary educators through articles that are grounded in theory, yet supported by practice. The Black History Bulletin welcomes articles on all aspects of Black history, especially those written with a focus on:
(1) middle school U.S. history; (2) high school U.S. history; (3) teacher preparation U.S. history methods.
The Black History Bulletin also welcomes inquiries from middle and high schools about featuring photographs of their teachers and students.
