The Black Scholars Index


The Black Scholars Index started in 2006.

The Black Scholars Index™ (BSI) is an online venue to highlight, record, analyze, and illustrate the scholarly achievements within the Black Diaspora.

Initially, we were sponsored by the Computer Learning & Design Center (CLDC) at Howard University.


This website project is powered by Uplift, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization

in Washington, DC. All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible.


If you or someone you know would like to donate and/or serve as a sponsor,

please feel free to contact us immediately!

Thanks for your interest and continued support.
