It is pleasure to announce the publication of African American Women: Contributions to the Human Sciences. Editors Julia R. Miller, Dorothy I. Mitstifer, and Gladys Gary Vaughn in collaboration with Kappa Omicron Nu and the Coalition for Black Development in Family and Consumer Sciences undertook this project to recognize the outstanding contributions of African American women to the human sciences. The book recognizes thirty-eight professionals who provided leadership in educational, political, and social movements for the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. The history, context, and movements in the twenty-first century from the literature establish a frame for the contributions of these women.
