The Black Scholar was founded in 1969 as a journal of black cultural and political thought in the United States. African American studies intellectuals, community activists, and national and international political leaders write about basic issues confronting black America and Africa.[1] It is based in California.

In its pages "intellectuals, community activists, and national and international political leaders come to grips with basic issues confronting black America and Africa".

The "entire spectrum of black political and cultural thought" appears in the pages of THE BLACK SCHOLAR, represented by leading writers such as Clarence Lusane, Melba Joyce Boyd, Manning Marable and Maulana Karenga.

Every issue of THE BLACK SCHOLAR focuses on a subject of major concern in the African American community. Education, black political empowerment, social movements, the multicultural debate, black women's activism, the crisis of the black male, the Ebonics debate, the Million Man March, the New South Africa and many other fundamental subjects have all been probed in the pages of THE BLACK SCHOLAR, often receiving national and international acclaim[2].

The 1998 Fall/Winter issue stated that "The Black Scholar" was published four times a year by the Black World Foundation, a non-profit educational organization, 485 65th Street, Oakland, CA, 94609, P.O. Box 2869, Oakland, CA,
