Nat’l Blk Sexuality Conf.
The Journal of Black Sexuality and Relationships is devoted to addressing the epistemological, ontological, and social construction of sexual expression and relationships of persons within the African diaspora. The journal seeks to take into account the transhistorical substrates that subsume behavioral, affective, and cognitive functioning of persons of African descent as well as those who educate or clinically serve this important population.
October 1-3, 2015 the events committee of the JBSR will host its first Black Family, Black Relationships, Black Sexuality Conference at the Cira Center (HUB), 2929 Arch Street in Philadelphia.
