Phylon (subtitle: the Clark Atlanta University Review of Race and Culture) is a semi-annual peer-reviewed academic journal covering culture in the United States from an African-American perspective. It was established in 1940 by W. E. B. Du Bois, at what was then known as Atlanta University, as a magazine dedicated to race and culture.[1] In 1957, the magazine was renamed The Phylon Quarterly, and in 1960 it was renamed again, this time to its original title.[2] It resumed publication in 2015 as an online-only journal, as a result of a collaboration between Atlanta University Center and Clark Atlanta University (formerly Atlanta University).[3] The editor-in-chief is Obie Clayton (Clark Atlanta University).
