New Scholarly Journal on Blacks in Texas

The first issue of the Journal of History and Culture has been published by the Texas Institute for the Preservation of History and Culture at Prairie View A&M University. The first issue contains articles on art, anthropology, history, architecture, geography, and literature of African Americans in Texas. Executive editor of the journal Akel Kahera, who is an associate professor of architecture at Prairie View A&M, says, “The purpose of JHC is to document African-American history in Texas dating back to the early 1500s and ultimately to be used as a reference for scholars.”

The journal plans to publish three issues a year.
