"The future of scholarship, teaching, community leadership, and more!"

What our Project directors are saying

"We apply the “digital divide” concept to higher education and our work in African American Studies. Our focus is on digital publishing. We seek to increase our collaboration with scholars, historically-Black colleges (HBCUs), community-based libraries and museums, and other information workers. Our goal is to produce and distribute more knowledge about the long, deep, and diverse human experiences lived by Black people and share this with as many people as possible."


Ronald William Bailey
Co-PI and Project Director
"AFRO PWW 2 is both an educational and publishing project designed to teach participants how to create in digital publishing platforms and to assist them in producing at least one online open-access peer-reviewed publication. It has three hands-on educational experiences - Introduction to Digital Publishing Webinar, Publications Only Workshops, and the Digital Scholarship for the Digital Age Institute (DSDA). Our dedicated team of specialists will instruct and advise participants in the use of the four digital platforms we support for them to develop proficiency in the platform(s) of their choice."
