The Avery Review for African American History and Culture - Scholarly Articles/Reviews Needed
The Avery Review seeks submission of scholarly articles and book reviews on the history and culture of African Americans in Charleston and the South Carolina Lowcountry. The Review is published annually by the Avery Research Center for African American History & Culture at the College of Charleston. Articles, which should be 15-30 typed, double-spaced pages (including endnotes using Turabian style), will be reviewed by an editorial board. Previous articles have addressed such diverse topics as the contemporary cultural renaissance of the Sea Islands, slave life on a Sea Island plantation, the contributions of the Old Charleston Slave Mart Museum, and the civil rights movement in Charleston, to name but a few.
The Avery Research Center for African American History & Culture at the College of Charleston is an archives and small museum devoted to the documentation, preservation, and publicization of the unique historical and cultural heritage of South Carolina Lowcountry African Americans. The Center is located in the building erected in 1868 for the Avery Normal Institute, the Charleston college preparatory and normal school that for 89 years educated the city's African American community.
