Africana Critical Theory: Reconstructing The Black Radical by Reiland Rabaka

By Reiland Rabaka

construction on and going some distance past W.E.B. Du Bois and the issues of the Twenty-First Century and Du Bois's Dialectics, Reiland Rabaka's Africana serious concept innovatively identifies and analyzes continental and diasporan African contributions to classical and modern serious thought. This publication represents a climatic serious theoretical clincher that cogently demonstrates how Du Bois's hardly ever mentioned dialectical concept, interdisciplinarity, highbrow history-making radical political activism, and world-historical a number of liberation circulate management helped to inaugurate a unique Africana culture of serious thought. With chapters on W.E.B. Du Bois, C.L.R. James, Negritude (Aime Cesaire and Leopold Senghor), Frantz Fanon and Amilcar Cabral, Africana serious conception endeavors to accessibly provide modern serious theorists an highbrow archaeology of the Africana culture of severe thought and a much-needed dialectical deconstruction and reconstruction of black radical politics. those six seminal figures' collective concept and texts truly cuts throughout numerous disciplines and, accordingly, closes the chasm among Africana reviews and important thought, regularly hard that intellectuals no longer easily imagine deep strategies, improve new theories, and theoretically aid radical politics, yet be and continually develop into political activists, social organizers and cultural employees - that's, people the Italian serious theorist Antonio Gramsci often called 'organic intellectuals.' during this experience, then, the sequence of reports accumulated in Africana serious idea give a contribution not just to African reviews, African American stories, Caribbean stories, Cultural reports, Gender reports, and Postcolonial reports, but in addition to modern serious theoretical discourse throughout an amazingly wide-range of 'traditional' disciplines, and radical political activism outdoors of (and, mostly, completely opposed to) Europe's ivory towers and the absurdities of the yank academy.
