The Karson Institute for Race, Peace & Social Justice


Within the Karson Institute, Dr. Karsonya "Kaye" Wise Whitehead, María Colompos-Tohtsonie, MPPA, & Dr. Walter Greason [guest co-edited] the Black History Bulletin (BHB) Volume 85, Number 1. The theme for this issue is, “Historical Trauma: Past Pains, Future Promise." 

In 1937, Dr. Carter G. Woodson, at the urging of Mary McLeod Bethune, founded The Black History Bulletin (née The Negro History Bulletin) aimed at providing teachers, students, and the general reader with a foundation in Black history. Since then, the BHB has become one of the academic lighthouses publishing articles and lesson plans that are designed to provide truth, historical knowledge, and insight into many of the critical issues facing the African American community.
