Special Theme Call for Manuscripts

The interdisciplinary special theme issue of The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment, "Police Shooting of Unarmed African American Males: Implications for the Individual, Family, and the Community," is dedicated to scholarly contributions, practice wisdom, solution-based, and evidence-based community interventions that are effective in addressing the perennial disproportionality of police brutality, and killings of African American males. The special issue editors welcome manuscript submissions that address police shooting of unarmed African American males and explain how the confluence and intersections of historic, contemporary, socioeconomic, legal, and political factors contribute to social inequities against African American males and their interactions with law enforcement agents; the call for manuscripts ends January 25, 2015.
