Description

"Radical Integration" explores the two primary theoretical frameworks for achieving black liberation: the integration approach (which can be understood as assimilationist) and the identity-based, community-centered approach (which can be understood as isolationist). I argue that neither framework, by itself, is enough to ensure the achievement of true black liberation. I extract key elements of each approach and harmonize them to envision an entirely new framework. This framework, "radical integration," refocuses on the impact of racial segregation on the black community and simultaneously recognizes the need to address concerns about black identity and black authenticity in an integrated environment.
