How Might I Best Use This Database?

The Cite Black Author database is meant to amplify Black scholarly work, and to do that effectively we encourage everyone to search through the citations listed for topics that best align with your research. Including authors in your work allows for them to be recognized in their academic field and aides in securing tenure, promotion and other academic positions that rely heavily on publications and citations. You may also find Black scholars to collaborate with on research projects, invite to your campus for guest lectures, or utilize their research in teaching exercises. Each of these actions will not only add to their scholarship and service, but it will also expand the depth of content that you bring to your work.
