The Black Scholar, founded in 1969 in the Bay Area, has become known as one of the most impactful journals of Black Studies, and a major player in the widespread establishment of that academic field. A comprehensive collection of the time's most prominent revolutionary writers, it includes poems and short essays by Sonia Sanchez and Al Young, as well as a book review by Alice Walker just a year before she published her beloved novel The Color Purple. This pristine journal highlights some of modern Black Literature's greatest minds at the apex of their writing careers.
