This special edition was co-edited by the spring 2019 African American Studies Public Scholarship class. Students were put in charge of procuring submissions, reviewing submissions, editing submissions and formatting them for publication. AFAM 399, Public Scholarship, is an AFAM course dedicated to student engagement with the Race & Pedagogy Institute. This semester the course dedicated its focus to creating a student edition of the Race & Pedagogy Journal that would showcase the 2018 Race & Pedagogy National Conference, the role of students in 2018 and the conferences prior, and the written work of current and past students. The following is a list of student co-editors for this special student edition.
