Call for Submissions

100 Years "Of" or "Since" Garvey(ism)?

Mobilizing the Centennial Legacy of the UNIA-ACL

 

We are pleased to welcome submissions for the third volume of our academic publication "76 King Street: Journal of Liberty Hall" - slated for release in 2016.

 

This call invites scholars; independent researchers; journalists; and writers from Africa and the African Diaspora, both inside and outside of the academy, to provide insightful dialogue on the theme of "mobilization"or "movement"in the time of, and since, Garvey.  This volume aims to mark the significance of these occasions by providing a critical, intellectual platform that offers: original research; critical perspectives; and/or reflections on the relevance of the models and systems of the (UNIA-ACL) that wasenvisioned by Garvey, to address past and enduring conditions of brutality against African peoples, globally.

 

Further, in the philosophical logic of the Adinkra principle of "Sankofa," we aim to explore the legacies of the (UNIA-ACL)model on other freedom and liberationprojects, in the last one hundred years of the Pan-Africanist Tradition.What were these models, and how were they useful? What were the overt contradictions and detriments, inherent in their systems? How do these models enlighten our knowledge about the nature and power inherent to systems ofgenocide; (settler) colonialism; enslavement; western patriarchy; and capitalism? What implications do these realities bear on ourtheoretical and practical futures?

 

The general themes for submissions are as followed:

  • Research of UNIA-ACL chapters and divisions;
  • Reflections on UNIA-ACL chapters and divisions;
  • Revisiting Garveyite and Pan-Africanist economic and/or leadership models;
  • The importance of citizenship; nation; state; nation-state in Pan-Africanist mobilization;
  • 20th century case studies of mobilization (or models) inspired by Garveyism;
  • The role and representation of culture in Pan-Africanist mobilization;
  • Reflections on Pan-Africanist mobilization and organizational models;
  • UNIA-ACL Legacies and Lessons for the 21st century;
