The journal was established as a quarterly in 1993 by Theodore Cross, a "champion of civil rights"[1] and the journal's longtime editor-in-chief.[2][3] The last print issue appeared in 2010.[4][5] Issues published between 1993 and 2010 are available on JSTOR.[5] However, the magazine still publishes articles on its website.[6] It reports and comments on statistical information pertaining to black students and faculty in the United States.[7][8] According to Rhonda Sharpe and William Darity ("Schools Successful at Producing Black Male Graduates"), it is "a key resource for publicly consumable statistical reports about the status of blacks in higher education".[9][10]

Its publisher is headquartered in Bartonsville, Pennsylvania.[6]
