Shelby’s Pragmatic Black Solidarity, A Resource for African American Studies in a Post-Civil Rights Era?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper criticizes Tommie Shelby’s approach to African American
studies, because it is founded upon Western political liberalism, the
very liberalism that has been an accomplice in the racial oppression of
African Americans. Even though Shelby’s attempt to construct a viable
conception of political black solidarity in a post-civil right era
America is worthwhile, his approach unwittingly undermines one of the
responsibilities of the discipline, namely to critique the theoretical
origins and continued justifications for discriminating against African
Americans.
