On this website, we want to amplify and uplift black voices in scholarship. We follow in the footsteps of the Cite Black Women and Cite Black Authors. These movements both push people to engage in radical citation practices that recognize the work of Black scholars and encourage the critical analysis of traditional knowledge production. In a similar fashion, we to invite people to engage with Black scholars and recognize the work they are doing in their respective fields as it relates to Black Joy. On the Cite Black Database page you will find citations and comments from our research team on works produced by Black scholars. We hope that you actively engage with these Black scholars and learn something you may not know!
