We are calling on Black women educators–African Americans, Naturalized Black Americans, and Foreign-born Blacks from Africa, the Caribbean Islands and South America--to bring forth their stories of Paradise Gained and Lost through the meanings that they assign to the 2008 and 2016 elections and, perhaps, related elections that have impacted their role as parents, educators and role models for black children. We are inviting stories that tell of the greatness of the Mother continent and the invincibility of the African spirit of courage and bravery and how they shaped the authors’ identities and their attitudes towards White domination.
The contemporary world is undergoing a period of accelerated change which can be attributed to a number of different developments: technological advances, the ubiquity of social media and smartphones, the acceleration of global warming and the resultant environmental disasters, and major political upheavals such as Brexit and the growth of white nationalist movements across the globe. These and other changes create constantly shifting and unstable contemporary environments. In this climate of economic, political and environmental uncertainty, it is important to address the impact on and outcomes of these and other major changes in our contemporary world.

While generally misunderstood as a nihilistic musical genre that peaked in the late 1970s, punk rock has evolved into an anti-authoritarian subculture with diverse and sometimes conflicting aesthetics and political orientations. Punk was once portrayed as a genre of music that was against anything and everything. However, punk sub-genres (and the communities that have risen up around them) such as peace punk, crust, riot grrrl, and queercore have inserted the political and social concerns of critical inquiry front and center into their music, fanzines, and social activities, transforming a music fan bases into decentralized activist communities.
