Queries and Discussions
The peer-reviewed Journal on African Philosophy (JAP) has published Issue 16. It is the second issue of the new series in JAP to highlight, engage, and celebrate African and Africana philosophers. One of the things this series does is to examine how foundational elements of African and Africana philosophy can serve as a tool to evaluate the changing times both at the personal and organizational level.

On the Passing of P. Sterling Stuckey (b. March 2,1932, d. August 15, 2018)
Can anyone point me toward resources that identify when the first use or uses of the term Civil Rights Movement was employed by participants of the modern-day movement (in "real time," not after the fact)? The editor I'm studying who was active from the 1940s until 1975 used the words "fight," "battle," and "struggle," but never the full phrase "civil rights movement."

I am looking for primary source materials related to childhood studies in order to build a resource library for graduate students and instructors.
My name is Emily Slomski. I am a second year graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under the advisement of Dr. Will Thomas.
As I'm currently just starting my master thesis on 'The United States and the Eurafrica Project' (1950-1960s), I'm looking for ideas about US perception of the project ( How was it documented in US publications for example ? Links/correspondences between African American intellectual and African intellectual). Thus, I was wondering if any of you would have useful recommendations for me. Thank you a lot and all the best,
The Graduate Institute in Geneva.
