UFAHAMU: Journal of African Studies welcomes scholars, researchers, activists, and members of the African Studies community from across southern California to the Fowler Museum for a special commemoration celebrating the digitization of UFAHAMU's entire archive of publications dating back 42 years. This digitization project represents a unique collaboration between UFAHAMU, the UCLA Graduate Student Association, and the UCLA Young Research Library, to bring all of UFAHAMU's rich history of publication on Africa and African Diaspora topics online, with a fully-searchable index of articles, as well as high resolution preservation of art works published in the journal since 1971. With funding from a unique and generous grant by the Young Research Library, and the invaluable technical support of the Graduate Student Association's Publications Department, UFAHAMU is very proud to be able to sustain its founding commitment to the wider dissemination of scholarly work on and from Africa and the Diaspora. We envision this project as a watershed moment in UFAHAMU's history, ushering in a new identity for the journal as a digital archive in the humanistic and social science fields of postcolonial African Studies. The Editors invite you to share in this historic commemoration of one of the longest running graduate-lead journals in the country, a historic publication that has given voice to scholars of Africa for nearly half a century. Come enjoy a performance of West African dancers as well as Senegalese food, and hear from current as well as past editors of UFAHAMU.
