OBSIDIAN'S HEIRLOOM: PRESERVING HBCU FUTURES, guest edited by Sheree Ren e Thomas with associate editors Danielle L. Littlefield & Danian Darrell Jerry, celebrates the brilliance and legacy of US-based, historically Black colleges and universities.
Since the Civil War, HBCUs and land-grant colleges have sustained spaces that nurture and value the creative, intellectual, and economic growth of Black students from throughout the diaspora, allowing some of the most celebrated artists, entrepreneurs, educators, civic leaders, physicians, and innovators to rise. This special issue recognizes that these historic institutions produce some of the most gifted Black artists and thinkers contributing to world thought today. HEIRLOOM includes an interview with Jericho Brown, visual art from Black Kirby (Stacey Robinson & John Jennings), reflections on the founding of Planet Deep South, and work by Bro. Yao (Hoke S. Glover III), Douglas Kearney, Monifa Love, Tony Medina, RaShell R. Smith-Spears, and Andrea Walls.
