Aims & Scope

The Trotter Review aims to:

  • Highlight current issues in Black studies to encourage scholars and students, members of the public and elected officials to address them
  • Influence policymakers to make decisions in the best interest of all their constituents
  • Increase constructive dialogue to enhance understanding of problems and to contribute to solutions
  • Promote appreciation of Black history and culture, and their depth, texture, and richness

The Review covers a broad range of topics, including: education, economic development, immigration, religion, and politics, as well as race relations, Black history, and culture. The Review is also interested in intergroup relations between Black people and other identifiable populations, and in relations within an increasingly diverse population of African-descent.
