From August 1st to August 31st, we’ll be on vacation. During this time, our writers and editors will have an opportunity to get some much-needed rest. We look forward to bringing you more groundbreaking content in September. In the meantime, please be sure to catch up on the excellent pieces we have published this summer. Also, be sure to check out the recent Call for Papers for the 2018 AAIHS Conference at Brandeis University. During our summer vacation, you can continue to submit pieces to the blog and/or email us if you have questions or concerns. However, please anticipate a delayed response–we’ll do our best to get back to you in early September. On behalf of Black Perspectives and the African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS), thank you for reading our blog. We appreciate your support. See you all on September 1st!
