2017 Call For Content

The editorial board of the Crimson & Black: A Journal for Black Policy (formerly known as the Harvard Journal of African American Public Policy) stands in solidarity with movements across the nation and beyond that seek to find policies and practices to further Black liberation.

For our 23rd edition – Black Vision, Black Revolution – we partner with The Movement for Black Lives to explore answers to their policy demands for Black liberation, power, and justice.

We invite students, scholars, activists, organizers, journalists, artists, and their critics to submit their work to our 2017 issue. This work is especially important today. We are looking for submissions in the following areas:

  • Ending the War on Black People
  • Invest-Divest: reallocation of funds at the federal, state and local level
  • Community control of police, schools, governments
  • Reparations
  • Decriminalization
  • Surveillance
  • Economic Justice
  • Education
  • internationalism (Military divestment)

Through February 1, 2017, Crimson & Black will accept research articles, book reviews, interviews, commentaries, photography, playlists, poetry, and other artwork for print publication consideration. C&B also accepts ongoing op-ed and blog submissions for online publication.

All work must be the author’s original work. Previously published work will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
