Black intellectualism has been misunderstood by the American public and by scholars for generations. Historically maligned by their peers and by the lay public as inauthentic or illegitimate, black intellectuals have found their work misused, ignored, or discarded. Black intellectuals have also been reductively placed into one or two main categories: they are usually deemed liberal or, less frequently, as conservative. The contributors to this volume explore several prominent intellectuals, from left-leaning leaders such as W. E. B. Du Bois to conservative intellectuals like Thomas Sowell, from well-known black feminists such as Patricia Hill Collins to Marxists like Claudia Jones, to underscore the variety of black intellectual thought in the United States. Contributors also situate the development of the lines of black intellectual thought within the broader history from which these trends emerged. The result gathers essays that offer entry into a host of rich intellectual traditions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this timely new collection, editors Brian D. Behnken, Gregory D. Smithers, and Simon Wendt have assembled a group of stellar essays that highlight the range and complexities of black intellectual thought in the United States. Drawing insights from several academic fields of inquiry including critical race theory and feminist theory, this volume is a necessary text for anyone interested in understanding black intellectual history."
