“CALLALOO is, without a doubt, the most elegantly edited journal of African and African American literature being published today.”
Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University

“CALLALOO is a bubbling dish of what is lively, scholarly, serious, and imaginative. It has become a staple food for American literary thought”
John Hollander, Yale University

“CALLALOO has been an indispensable force in my life ever since its editor, Charles Rowell, published my first book of fiction in 1985. the embracing vision of CALLALOO has encouraged me to stretch my literary muscles, so that I have continued to explore other genres besides poetry in the quest to plumb the ever unfolding complexities of the human soul.”
Rita Dove, former Poet Laureate of the USA, University of Virginia

“CALLALOO is a bubbling dish of what is lively, scholarly, serious, and imaginative. It has become a staple food for American literary thought.”
John Hollander, Yale University

“CALLALOO has emerged as our most important forum for fiction, criticism, and poetry by Afro-American writers. From one issue to the next, it is a resource scholars and creators will find crucial for understanding contemporary black literary practice.”
Charles Johnson, University of Washington

“Without CALLALOO the entire landscape of American letters would be immensely impoverished. What higher praise can a journal earn?”
Ken Wissoker, Editor-in-Chief, Duke University Press

“CALLALOO has created and preserved the finest tradition of intellectual work over a quarter of a century. Rarely has a journal had more integrity in keeping to its profound cultural and political agenda. A generation of humanistic scholars owe CALLALOO an unaccountable debt and, in this time of national struggle, wherever we can find Americans, they owe CALLALOO the debts of enlightenment, knowledge, and understanding. We know that CALLALOO’s next quarter of a century will be even more important than its first.”
Paul A. Bové, Editor, Boundary 2, University of Pittsburgh
