DETAILS

Mainstream narratives of Pan-African activism/Black Nationalist movement have almost always downplayed the intellectual and political contributions of Afro-Caribbean nationalist women.

This call, therefore, invites scholars, researcher, and writers from the African Diaspora, both inside and outside academia, to provide insightful dialogue on the theme Unsilenced: Afro- Caribbean Women in Black Nationalist Activism.

For volume 5, we seek papers that examine the erasure of the intellectual and political labour, and lives of Afro-Caribbean nationalist women who have “long embodied transnational identities by virtue of their political organizing, migratory networks, and border crossing”; their roles in canonizing the Black Nationalist political movement.

In addition, we welcome biographical notes on Garveyites, articles, book reviews, reviews of Afro themed exhibitions, and literary texts related to the study of Garvey, Pan-Africanism and the history, culture and current affairs of Africa and the Diaspora. Submissions must include an abstract and 100 word biographic note. Queries and submissions should be made electronically to the Editor at 76kingstreetjournal@gmail.com. All submissions are peer-reviewed.
