about this item

Postmodern Racial Dialectics is a collection of ten essays on African American philosophy.Addressing issues as disparate as why there are no graduate programs in philosophy at the more than one hundred traditionally black colleges and universities in the U.S.—to conceptions of Black utopianism—to the nature of postmodern revolutions, these essays are beyond the bounds of traditional racial discourse. The essays aredialectical in the sense that they are conversations between personal histories, between ideologies, and between changing ways that the races talk to one another. The book ispostmodern in that it is beyond modernity’s linear logic.Postmodern Racial Dialectics is also a political entreaty for African Americans to be wary of conventional ways of thinking, and to begin thinking transgressively beyond narrowly prescribed conceptions from both sides of the color line.
