The Southern University at New Orleans Library publishes the journal irregularly with the collaboration of the SUNO College of Arts & Sciences. The first issue of this journal was funded by a Louisiana State Board of Regents Enhancement Grant for FY 2006-2007. Volume One, Issue One can be viewed online at http://www.suno.edu/News/docs/NOHCR_Volume_One_Issue_One_WEB.pdf
