The Journal of Race and Policy (JRP) was conceived at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia in 2004. It was initiated with a small seed grant from the university's Division of Academic Affairs. The mission of the journal is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of research on public policy issues and initiatives in areas such as education, employment, health care, political participation, social welfare, and social justice. As an independent, peer reviewed, scholarly publication, the journal seeks to promote intellectual debate, rigorous investigation, and the development of new ideas on race, ethnicity, diversity, and public policy in American society and the global arena. The JRP speaks to the contemporary problems and complexities that beset the United States and the world in light of quickened and more profound patterns of technological and economic development - patterns frequently coupled with population expansion marked by racial, ethnic, and cultural diversification. Within this context, the pursuit of the goals of social equity and justice are regarded as paramount for long-term domestic and global stability. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education ruling, in April 2005, the journal published its inaugural issue entitled Evolving Considerations of Race: African Americans in the Post-Brown Era. Donathan L. Brown of Ithaca College serves as managing editor of the journal.
