African American Review

The African American Review is a quarterly journal and the official publication of the Division on Black American Literature and Culture of the Modern Language Association. The journal promotes exchange among writers and scholars in the arts, humanities, and social sciences who hold diverse perspectives on African American literature and culture. Between 1967 and 1976, the journal appeared under the title "Negro American Literature Forum" and for the next fifteen years was titled "Black American Literature Forum". In 1992, "African American Review" changed its name for a third time and expanded its mission to include the study of a broader array of cultural formations. Currently, the journal prints essays on African American literature, theatre, film, the visual arts, and culture generally; interviews; poetry; fiction; and book reviews.
