The Editorial Board for the Society of the First African Families of English America has just opened the request for the Call for Papers for the 2023 Journal. For more information:

We seek articles on free, freed, or enslaved Americans of African descent whose lineage originates and is documented between the period of 1619 through 05 April 1770 (this includes Revolutionary War soldiers and those who contributed to the war effort). Whether or not you have written for the Journal previously, you might find that your research fits well within our editorial focus, and we always welcome submissions of articles, especially from new authors. 

Please do not submit articles that have been published previously, either in print or online, or an article that you are also submitting to another journal. Please refer to our website for up-to-date instructions and guidance at
