Announcing a new journal!
Kalfou: A Journal of Comparative and Relational Ethnic Studies has launched through a partnership between the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research and Temple University Press. Edited by George Lipsitz, the journal is designed to connect anti-subordination scholarship to the ideas, experiences, archives, and imaginaries of organic intellectuals, activists, and artists from aggrieved communities.
Following the legacies of the Black radical tradition, the journal is interdisciplinary, international, intergenerational, and intersectional in its approaches to engaged anti-racist scholarship and civic work, as its contributors strive to create a world transcending citizenship.
Electronic Publication: Black California Dreamin'
Black California Dreamin': The Crises of California's African-American Communities presents a diverse group of essays highlighting particular issues facing black communities in California. In this co-edited volume, the authors engage in thought-provoking analyses that include topics such as gentrification, education, foreclosures, homelessness, migration, incarceration, entrepreneurship, urban renewal, gun violence, youth violence, community building, asset stripping, black-brown relations, art as resistance, and the criminalization of poverty. The volume serves as an interdisciplinary contribution to the body of work in Black California Studies. Co-edited by: Ingrid Banks, Gaye Johnson, George Lipsitz, Ula Taylor, & Daniel Widener.
