Aim and Scope of Special Section

Our aim in this special issue is to focus on black racial oppression from a wide range of vantage points. Using the above metaphors as lenses, the guest editors are seeking personal stories (experiences, opinions, feelings and concerns) about inherent black racism in content, context, policies, procedures, practices, interactions and relationships, just to name a few. The objective of this special issue is to illuminate personal experiences along with suggested change strategies to deal with systemic racial injustice infecting our social systems on all levels. We seek manuscripts that explore and describe details of personal interactions and reactions of black racism and oppression in all phases of professional practice and education including interactions with administration, supervisors, colleagues and clients. We also encourage manuscripts on teaching, research, advising and mentoring students and community engagement. Each manuscript must include recommendations for solutions in the context of the narrative.  

Special Section Focus

We are seeking narratives from students, practitioners and educators across all helping professionals who are willing to share their personal experiences. All submissions should range from 1200-8000 words in length.
