The Journal of Pan African Studies (JPAS) is joining The Black Scholar, The Journal of African American History, Souls: A Critical Review of Black Culture, the Journal of Black Psychology, African American Learners and other scholarly publications in a Call for Papers on the "Ten Point Program for Reparations for African Americans" devoted to the discussion and analysis of what might be included in a "Ten Point Program" for reparation payments to African Americans in the United States. Thus, JPAS seeks manuscripts that identify and explain how reparations payments should be used to advance the economic, political and educational reality of African Americans in the United States based in part on the March 2014 "CARICOM Ten Point Program" formulated by 14 nations in the Caribbean, focused on "reparations as a development strategy."

The non-exhaustive relevant topics sought for this special issue include:

• Health
• Education
• Reparations for Africa
• Community Development
• Global African Reparations
• Repatriation: Back to Africa
• Income Tax Reduction/Cancellation
• Reparatory Justice in the 21st Century
• African Americans in the 21st Century
• Reparations Expenditure Methodology
• Strategic Collective Vision for Reparations
• Historically Black Colleges and Universities

All submitted articles should have: an introduction, literature review, a methodological construct, a discussion segment, a conclusion, and suggested steps for further research that can intellectually engage scholars, students, activist and others.
