This is a special issue volume that focuses on the ways some students in an  African American and African Diaspora Studies graduate course at Indiana University-Bloomington integrated practice and engagement into their scholarly work.  The scholarly ideas and the scholarship presented in this volume are illustrations of ways that aspects of the Black Studies mission--that intersects research, practice, and engagment-- can be employed to reconnect the field's organic link between activism and intellectual work, so that the continuous empowerment of those scholars, researchers, practitioners, and communities, working together to understand the world and to make it a better place for Black and other peoples, can be sustained.
