After reading Sartre and Beauvoir, we became interested in black existentialism and phenomenology. We’ve been exploring Frantz Fanon and James Baldwin, and now we’re going to read an essay by Kathryn Gines that was published in Convergences: Black Feminism and Continental Philosophy: “Sartre, Beauvoir, and the Gender/Race Analogy: The Case for Black Feminist Philosophy”.
These reading groups are designed to take theory and philosophy out of the ivory tower and bring these conversations back into the community. No prior knowledge of theory and philosophy is required, and we believe that everyone can contribute to these important conversations.
