Iola Publications started in 2010 as part of the Women of the African Diaspora Project. We seek submissions related to the life and activism of women of color throughout the diaspora and contemporary sociopolitical issues. Submissions are encouraged from faculty, activists, non-profit professionals, and students. Through study of the life and activism of women of color we focus on how they met the challenges of the sociopolitical issues reflective of their time in order to seek solutions to current sociopolitical issues.
The journal is published annually with a focus on women of color in specific time periods and/or movements in conjunction with contemporary sociopolitical issues.
Currently, we are accepting submissions on Women of the Club Movement from 1860-1930 and the following sociopolitical issues: HIV/AIDS, Domestic Violence, The Role of Hip Hop, Reconnecting Youth to Education , and the Prison Industrial Complex.
