The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation regularly publishes special reports addressing key public policy issues affecting the global black community including economic independence, public health, education and leadership. Signature publications include “Breaking Barriers 2”, an in-depth look at African-American students and the public education system, and “Understanding Health Reform: A Community Guide for African Americans”.
In addition to CBCF’s signature in-depth reports, CBCF Research and Policy publications include analysis briefings, articles, backgrounders, published opinions and arguments by CBCF fellows and experts.
Written by scholars and practitioners for a general, non-specialist audience, the Journal of the Center for Policy Analysis and Research (JCPAR) follows the standard of a peer-reviewed, social science publication and serves as a conduit between research and policy. With just over 10 entries, this issue has a special focus on topics including in-depth and innovative approaches to help advance the study of Black identities, ethnicities and diasporas, and in turn, highlights how these perspectives inform representative governance and public policy.
