In Black Political Thought: From David Walker to the Present, Sherrow O. Pinder has brought together the writings and discourses central to black political thought and African American politics, compiling a unique anthology of speeches and articles from over 150 years of African American history. Providing in-depth examinations and critical analyses of topics such as slavery, reconstruction, race and racism, black nationalism and black feminism - from a range of perspectives - students are equipped with a comprehensive and informative account of how these issues have fundamentally shaped and continue to shape black political thinking. Each of the six thematic parts is framed by an introduction written by black scholars working in the field, and a list of further readings. Individual chapters are then enhanced by end-of-chapter questions and author biographies. Written for the interdisciplinary field of black studies, and other social science and humanities disciplines, this textbook offers a unique resource for political scientists, sociologists, historians, feminists, and the general reader of black political thought.

'This volume is an important text for those interested in the philosophy and history of black political thought.' Melvin Rogers, Brown University
'Today, when views of America as a white nation are resurgent, it is vital to appreciate the profound contributions of a long tradition of black political thought to the struggles and ideals that have shaped all Americans, and all of humanity. Sherrow Pinder's outstanding compilation of seminal writings is invaluable now.' Rogers M. Smith, University of Pennsylvania
'This valuable new collection guides readers through several essential works in African American political thought. Combining classical writings with a range of contemporary commentaries, this volume shows how our understanding of the modern political world is woefully misguided without thoughtful and critical attention to various modes of racial inequality.' Andrew J. Douglas, Morehouse College
'In the long struggle for racial equality, Black contributions in many fields have eventually (if grudgingly) been recognized. But political theory has been an outlier. Sherrow Pinder's invaluable collection on Black political thought will be a great resource for establishing that, in this area also, Black thinkers have developed distinctive ideologies of their own that mainstream political theorists will have to acknowledge and reckon with.' Charles W. Mills, City University of New York Graduate Center


A unique collection of articles and speeches by prominent African American activists, spanning over 150 years of black political thought.
