The Black History Bulletin was founded in 1937 as The Negro History Bulletin by Carter G. Woodson at the urging of Mary McLeod Bethune.  It is dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning in the area of history.  The BHB’s aims are to publish, generate, and disseminate peer-reviewed information about African Americans in U.S. history, the African Diaspora generally, and the peoples of Africa.  Its purpose is to inform the knowledge base for the professional praxis of secondary educators through articles that are grounded in theory, yet supported by practice.  The BHB has been redesigned to meet the national teaching standards and to be the nexus between educational innovators and students.

The Black History Bulletin is co-edited by Professor Alicia L. Moore (Ph.D.)  and  Dean LaVonne I. Neal (Ph.D.)


La Vonne I. Neal, Ph.D., is Dean of the College of Education at Northern Illinois University. Dean Neal is a teacher educator whose work in the design and implementation of culturally responsive teaching methods has earned wide recognition both among educators and popular press. For example, her research on the correlation between African American male students’ walking styles and their placement in special education courses has been featured in USA Today, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Diversity Inc. Com, and radio and television stations across the country.
