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.  Unsolicited manuscripts will not be returned unless accompanied by a properly self-addressed return envelope with postage.  Below are the mailing address for manuscripts and contact information for the editors.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Black History Bulletin welcomes articles written with a focus on: (1) middle school U.S. History; (2) high school U.S. History; (3) teacher preparation social studies methods. Tangible works to be included in the Bulletin are items such as lesson plans and pullouts, ranging from teacher “how-to” to biographical and/or informational pieces about African Americans for students to read.  These materials will be used to supplement teachers’ lesson plans and textbooks.  Teachers will be exposed to the hidden gems of information about African Americans that were omitted from their textbooks in their own secondary and postsecondary teacher preparation programs. Articles should be no more than seven (7) typed, double-spaced pages, including endnotes.  Please use The Chicago Manual of Style for citations. Submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.  Your cover letter should include the title of your manuscript, your name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, and fax number.  Your manuscript should begin with the title of your manuscript and should not include your name. Please direct inquiries to the editors.  E-mail your manuscript (Microsoft Word) to the editors.  Include the subject line, “Black History Bulletin” for reference. Author Guidelines and Lesson Plan Template
