Africa Diaspora, Ph.D. (or #ADPHD) was created by Jessica Marie Johnson, assistant professor of Africana Studies and History at Johns Hopkins University. #ADPHD is a blog dedicated to "the life and culture of people of African descent in Africa, Europe, and the Americas from the fifteenth century into the late nineteenth - the period of Atlantic slavery and slave trading." On the site's blog, visitors will find news about conferences, scholarly publications, popular publications, digital resources, and more - all relating to Black individuals around the globe. As visitors enter #ADPHD, they can explore entries by category tags including art, digital resources, articles, blogroll, and sources. What is unique about #ADPHD is Johnson's inclusion of historical resources, including recently digitized primary sources, alongside contemporary resources, such as recently published articles and blog posts. In doing so, Johnson demonstrates that Black scholarship and intellectual life has a long and rich genealogy.
