We at the Harvard BlackLetter Law Journal (HBLJ), formerly the Harvard Journal on Racial and Ethnic Justice, are excited to announce our 2019 Call for Content. HBLJ is looking for submissions from activists, those who are or have been incarcerated, lawyers, organizers, scholars, and others confronting issues facing Black Communities in the United States. We are accepting submissions until January 31, 2020.

HBLJ welcomes written submissions of no more than 20 pages, with a recommended length of between 1 and 3 pages. Written submissions can include short essays, poems, and the like. HBLJ also welcomes submissions employing other modes of expression, such as photography, spoken word, videography and so on, as well as submissions (at any stage in the development process) addressing issues affecting Black Communities other than the specific issue outlined above.

Please email submissions to, and email the same with any questions.  Submissions may also be mailed to the following address: Harvard BlackLetter Law Journal, Wasserstein Hall, 1585 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138.
