SAGE Celebrates 50 Years of the Journal of Black Studies

SAGE is endowing a $100,000 Africology and African American Studies graduate research scholarship—the SAGE Asante Award—to Temple University’s College of Liberal Arts in Philadelphia to honor the 50th anniversary of the Journal of Black Studies (JBS). Molefi Kete Asante created JBS in 1968 when he approached SAGE founder Sara Miller McCune with the idea for scholarship responding to the Black studies movement. The first full volume was published in 1971. Asante joined the faculty of Temple’s College of Liberal Arts in 1984, and he started the country’s first doctoral program in African American Studies there in 1988. A SAGE blog post shares the journal’s accomplishments.

“For SAGE, this is representative of continuing support in the field of Black studies, but also as a way to commemorate and celebrate Molefi Asante’s amazing commitment to the field,” says Blaise Simqu, SAGE’s CEO.

“The SAGE Asante Award will become a standard by which we evaluate graduate student scholarship in the discipline of Africology,” says Asante.
