Join us in celebrating the release of the new book African American Political Thought: A Collected History, edited by Melvin L. Rogers (Brown University) and Jack Turner III (University of Washington).

African American Political Thought (University of Chicago Press, 2021) offers an unprecedented philosophical history of thinkers from the African American community and African diaspora who have addressed the central issues of political life: democracy, race, violence, liberation, solidarity, and mass political action.

Melvin L. Rogers and Jack Turner have brought together leading scholars to reflect on individual intellectuals from the past four centuries, developing their list with an expansive approach to political expression. The collected essays consider such figures as Martin Delany, Ida B. Wells, W. E. B. Du Bois, James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, and Audre Lorde.

Speakers will include:
Book editors Melvin L. Rogers (Associate Professor of Political Science, Brown University) and Jack Turner III (Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Washington)
Essay Contributors to African American Political Thought
