While this journal has the potential to give undergraduate students access to the kind of publication opportunities that graduate schools look for, it also makes the study of black women’s lives more visible. We offer a sense of weight and import to the neglected study of black women and, simultaneously, help make such undergraduate projects and ideas public and valued.
