The Journal of African American History, formerly The Journal of Negro History, was founded by Dr. Carter G. Woodson on January 1, 1916. Since then, the Journal has evolved into the leading scholarly source on African American life and history. Now in its 95th volume, The Journal of African American History has explored many of the unique facets of African American history, including the first major scholarly analysis of the hip hop movement (Vol. 90, No. 3).
Founded in 1915, by Carter G. Woodson, The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) promotes, researches, preserves, interprets, and disseminates information about Black life, history, and culture to the global community. ASALH serves both the academic and the general population. ASALH publishes three scholarly journals: the Journal of African American History (formerly the Journal of Negro History) founded in 1916; The Black History Bulletin (formerly the Negro History Bulletin) founded in 1937; and Fire!!!: The Multimedia Journal of Black Studies launching in February 2011. Since 1926, ASALH has published materials in support of Negro History Week, now Black History Month. ASALH also publishes a limited number of books as The ASALH Press.
