Overview

Because African-American concerns are, to political philosophy's detriment, inadequately theorized in mainstream political philosophy, the author seeks to demonstrate that the diversity of African-American formulations of community can lend to majoritarian and African American political thought. Beginning the discussion with Martin Luther King's "Beloved Community" and moving on to the philosophical perspectives of Lucius Outlaw, Cornel West, and others, the author examines and supportively critiques the utopian ideals of community formed by the African American experience.
