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.

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. Download the author guidelines and lesson
