Reviews - What do customers think about I Am Because We Are: Readings in Black Philosophy?
Very composed work Sep 12, 2009
Any African-American deeply looking for roots in this modern age will find themselves in this book. This work has the full range of the most influential African descended writers, orators, philosophers, politicians, & spiritualists. Also, the authors both do a great job of not imposing any actual ideal or definition for "Black Philosophy", but rather reveals the collection of Black history so that a reader may make their own observations.
