  • Leadership Amidst Poverty: a Mixed-Methodological Analysis of the Shack
           Dweller Federation of Namibia
    • Authors: Sandra L. Barnes; Angela Cowser; Terrick A. Gutierrez
      Abstract: Can leaders emerge amidst chronic poverty? This mixed-methodological study examines the influence of demographic, attitudinal, and behavioral traits on self-defined leadership status for 281 female members of the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia, a network of neighborhood-based savings groups that attempts to provide affordable housing and related infrastructure services to impoverished black women. We consider the following research questions: Do Federation women consider themselves leaders? Are certain women more likely to consider themselves leaders than others? Results based on statistical and content analyses, and informed by leadership theory, suggest the importance of ethnicity, education, Pentecostal and mainline religious affiliations, sweat equity, and leadership interest in explaining whether women consider themselves leaders. Representative themes also illustrate some of the nuanced ways leadership is understood and experienced.

  • Social Norms, Gender Ratio Imbalance, Perceptions of Risk, and the Sexual
           Behaviors of African American Women at Historically Black Colleges and
           Universities
    • Authors: Jennifer Michelle Johnson
      Abstract: This literature review provides a summary of the sexual risk literature focused on black college students and identifies some of the risk factors associated with African American women attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The review included analysis of scholarly work and web-based data with an emphasis on studies exploring the sexual behaviors of students attending HBCUs published between 2000 and 2016. The results indicated that social norms, religiosity, gender ratio imbalances on campus, and perceived STD risk remain important factors associated with the sexual behaviors of African American women at HBCUs. Black college students in general and African American women specifically remain underrepresented and understudied in the research focused on sexual risk behaviors. The review suggests that additional empirical studies are needed to examine the sexual behaviors of African American college women as well as the programs in place at HBCUs to increase student knowledge about STIs.

  • The Black Panther Party and the Japanese Press
    • Authors: Jason Christopher Jones
      Abstract: This paper examines representations of the Black Panther Party (BPP) in three of Japan’s top-circulating newspapers—Yomiuri Shimbun, Asahi Shimbun, and Mainichi Shimbun—from 1966 to 1979, these years marking the period of greatest BPP activity. The purpose of this analysis is to bring renewed perspective regarding the light in which the BPP was covered by a non-US press, as a step toward further developing scholarship of transnational discourse on black militancy. Through making additions to said scholarship, the author wishes to contribute to the greater aim of reexamining frameworks of representational power, calling into question the lynchpins of this power as they function toward our understanding of blackness and race in an historical context. The paper is divided into two distinct parts. The first part chronicles the trajectory of the Japan and black American relationship. This forms the context for the author’s examination of BPP coverage in the aforementioned newspapers.

  • Kinship Support in Jamaican Families in the USA and Jamaica
    • Authors: Ivy Forsythe-Brown; Robert Joseph Taylor; Linda M. Chatters; Ishtar O. Govia; Niki Matusko; James S. Jackson
      Abstract: This study compares the provision and receipt of kin support for Jamaican immigrants in the US and Jamaican nationals residing in Jamaica. Two datasets are utilized for the study. US data is from the National Survey of American Life (NSAL) which contains the first national probability sample of Caribbean immigrants in the USA. Data for Jamaican nationals comes from the Family Connections across Generations and Nations, a dataset associated with the NSAL. Findings indicate that both Jamaican immigrants and Jamaican nationals provide and receive substantial support from family members. Age and parental and marital status impact the amount of support given and received. In particular, there is a significant interaction between parental status, age, and receiving support that is consistent for both Jamaican immigrants in the US and Jamaican nationals. Findings are discussed in relation to previous research in this field.

  • The Black Panther Party: a Virtuous Alignment with an African Worldview
    • Authors: Michael Tillotson
      Abstract: This work will locate the Black Panther Party as resistance against the final vocabulary as articulated by philosopher Richard Rorty (1989) in his book, Contingency, Irony and Solidarity, on two fronts. The first front is a re-articulation of his idea of the final vocabulary, and the second front is the language of resistance and discursive interventions put forth by the Black Panther Party. This paper will explore the actions of the Black Panther Party and its relationship to an African-Centered communal orientation in terms of its organizational activities and service/survival programs. Lastly, this research will explore the theoretical construction Afrocentricity to analyze the Black Panther Party’s resistance role against the machinations of the state.

  • The Black Panther Party: a Virtuous Alignment with an African Worldview

  • Mark Clark’s Tenuous Place in History
    • Authors: Judson L. Jeffries; Omari L. Dyson; Charles E. Jones
      Abstract: This study seeks to ascertain whether the Chicago Daily Defender’s coverage of the December 4, 1969 assassination of Mark Clark and Fred Hampton represents a prevailing pattern among black newspapers or an aberration in the black media’s treatment of the infamous event. Moreover, we wish to determine how the black press coverage differed from that of the mainstream media. The study proceeds with a brief synopsis of the police actions taken on that fateful December morning, after which the data and methodological design of the study are presented and followed by an analysis of the findings. We then offer a biographical capsule of Mark Clark’s life and activism; heretofore, largely overlooked in the scholarly narratives of the raid. Finally, the study concludes with a discussion of the sources contributing to Clark’s near erasure from the annals of history.

  • State Repression and the Black Panther Party: Analyzing Joshua Bloom and
           Waldo E. Martin's Black against Empire
    • Authors: Navid Farnia
      Abstract: This essay analyzes the contention that state repression did not play a primary role in the Black Panther Party’s (BPP) demise. In their book, Black Against Empire: The History and Politics of the Black Panther Party, Joshua Bloom and Waldo Martin, Jr. claim that during the BPP's early years, state repression actually helped garner outside support for the Panthers. The authors furthermore argue that the Panthers only became more repressible after they lost external support due to uncontrollable circumstances. This paper considers their conclusions while also surveying previous scholarship on state repression against the Black Panther Party.

  • The Socratic Black Panther: Reading Huey P. Newton Reading Plato
    • Authors: Brian P. Sowers
      Abstract: This essay examines the role of Platonic literature and philosophy in part 2 of Newton’s (1973) Revolutionary Suicide (RS) and argues that Plato’s Republic, as the seminal text in Newton’s early adult life, intertextually directs the course of events, both the ways Newton describes the plight of Black America and how Newton engages other literary texts, poetry in particular. Over the course of part 2 of RS, Newton increasingly adopts the guise of a modern day Socrates, confounding his white opponents and revealing the truth about racial oppression. Studying prose texts, especially philosophy, becomes (inter)textually symbolic for racial enlightenment, on the one hand, and for the responsibility Newton sees of himself to share that enlightenment with those still chained in the dark recesses of the cave, on the other.
