The Department, through the IAAA, publishes its monthly newsletter KITABU which circulated nationally. The African American Affairs Monograph Series projected to become a referred scholarly journal, published each spring semester. Even though KITABU has an internal-use value, IAAA seeks to print articles and announcements of value to a general audience as well. The Department encourages faculty, staff and graduate and undergraduate students to submit articles, creative writings, reviews, etc. to either of these publications.
