On The Move

V.P. Franklin, a professor of education and history at UC Riverside, was scheduled to attend a White House reception today honoring Black History Month.

Franklin recently completed the first issue of the centennial volume of The Journal of African American History, which he edits from an office on the UCR campus, according to a report in The Press-Enterprise.

That quarterly journal is read mostly by university scholars. About 2,500 copies of each issue are distributed to members of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, and some copies are sent to libraries.

Some material from the journal is taught to middle-school and high school students and is presented in the Black History Bulletin, which is published by the association, the report stated.
