It is peer-reviewed journal that W.E.B. Du Bois founded at Atlanta University in 1940. It has moved from a quarterly to a semi-annual publication and each issue will be defined by a special topic of general interest to faculty in the humanities and social sciences. With each volume we will encourage joint authorship by academics from various disciplines so that not only is the theme of the article presented, but it will be discussed in a Du Bosian interdisciplinary fashion taking into account historical, political and socio-economic interpretations. We believe that it is time to recognize that many of us in nominally separate fields and disciplines are working on the same problem from slightly different angles.
