Description

From early points of Black thought in the West there has been a persistent trend rooted in the need for racial vindication and the politics of redemption. These notions are rooted in the idea that Black people must vindicate themselves collectively as a race to their oppressors in order to be redeemed. These ideas can be seen even in the intellectual work of early Haitian founding fathers as well as Black thinkers from Frederick Douglass to Marcus Garvey. How sound has it been to assume the politics of redemption as a vehicle of Black liberation? Does such thinking do anything but replicate the power dynamics that allowed belief in racial inferiority? Is there any materialist value in such politics, or are they a burdensome relic of times gone past?
