We are pleased to present our 20th anniversary double issue featuring guest editors Babacar M'Baye of Kent State University (Kent, Ohio), and Deidre Hill Butler of Union College (Schenectady, NY). Dr. M'Baye's issue, titled "Innovative Connections of Africana Cultures, Issues, and Literatures" contains a JPAS subscriber profile of Dr. Solomon Gashaw, an associate professor of Sociology at the University of Minnesota, Morris; and an examination of concrete ways of tackling key problems of the African world in the context of discriminatory and competitive relations between poor, developing, and wealthy nations; and ask essential questions such as: what are the major cultural, historical, and literary connections between Black people in Africa and those in Diaspora; how did forcefully imposed relations between haves and have-nots across the regions where Black populations live shape the inequalities that now plague the African world, and what role does racism and prejudice play in constraining Africana populations? And second, Dr. Butler's presentation "Africana Mothering: Shifting Roles and Emerging Contradictions", will focus on interdisciplinary issues that explore mothering throughout the African Diaspora, with a look at the social, historical, and cultural constructions and reconstructions of mothering via variations in mothering roles, and the important cultural motivations/ideologies of mothering.
