The Association for the Study of the Worldwide African Diaspora is honored to announce that we have created four prizes to celebrate scholarly excellence in the field of African & African Diaspora Studies.

This announcement is particularly meaningful, since two of the book prizes are named in honor of Sterling Stuckey and Rosalyn Terborg-Penn, two of ASWAD's founders who passed away in 2018. Tributes to these extraordinary scholars can be found online here: ASWAD Memorials.

We are especially grateful to six anonymous donors whose generous contributions have made it possible for us to provide a financial award for each of the book prizes. Details about the awards are printed below and also on the attached document. There are three book prizes and an article prize. Please circulate these announcements widely.

All my best,

Leslie M. Alexander, Ph.D.
President, Association for the Study of the Worldwide African Diaspora (ASWAD)
