Fear of a Black Consciousness


There is a movement from a suffering Black consciousness to a liberatory Black consciousness in which revelation of the dirty laundry and fraud of white supremacy and black inferiority is a dreaded truth. We often grapple with the idea of race, but seldom pause to consider how much the construct shapes our core beliefs and ways of being. Lewis Gordon, one of the leading scholars of Black Existentialism, has spent decades nurturing intellectual reflection as a vital component of ongoing activism for racial justice around the world. In this boldly original book, he delves into history, art, politics and popular culture to show how the process of racialization – and its absence – affects not only how individuals and society perceive black people but also how black people perceive themselves.
