The William Monroe Trotter Institute for the Study of Black Culture was founded at UMass Boston in 1984 to address the needs and concerns of the black community and communities of color in Boston and Massachusetts through research, technical assistance, and public service.
The institute sponsors public forums and publishes the Trotter Review, a journal of articles addressing current black studies, race, and race relations in the United States and abroad. The institute also publishes research reports and occasional papers on a broad range of topics in the areas of education, employment and training, public health, economic and community development, as well as race relations.
