Volume 1, Number 1 (2024) Contesting Erasure: Empowering Legacy through Innovation, Documentation, and Rectification

Call for Papers (CFP)

The erasure of African Diaspora culture in America specifically, and throughout the Diaspora generally has always been a part of the struggle for liberation. Liberation is not limited to physical freedom, but also the freedom to think, create, act, and exist. True liberation also means receiving credit for, appreciation for, and acknowledgment of, all that is produced culturally, ideologically, and spiritually by people of African descent. Equally important, true liberation means stereotypes, misinformation, and untruths can be rectified with the support of one’s society, instead of society’s opposition to it. This first issue of At the Cutting Edge, “Contesting Erasure: Empowering Legacy through Innovation, Documentation, and Rectification,” serves as a means to expose the propagation of historical untruths and the erasure of Black cultural production; as a means to course correct; and as a call to action. To that end, At the Cutting Edge, is calling for articles for its first issue. All topics and disciplines that address the issue’s scope and/or the journal’s mission and aims will be considered. Please note, articles should be academically rigorous but legible for mainstream audiences.
