JALAS&L (as we informally call the Journal of Afro-Latin American Studies and Literatures), was conceived of three years ago to promote scientific investigation and awareness of the many issues that have confronted African-Latin American citizens from colonial times to the present. Most importantly, this publication is unconditionally committed to underscoring the significance of the rich and diverse contributions of peoples with African ancestry to the life, culture, and the arts of the Americas.

Our journal has received a tremendously positive response from our academic community. We are very confident, indeed, that it will be a great tool for scholars in their research and classroom teaching of graduate and undergraduate students alike. Some of the most respected and well-known writers, critics, and scholars in the field, from the US and abroad, participate directly, or indirectly, in the life of this journal.
