Black is Beautiful identifies and explores the most significant philosophical issues that emerge from the aesthetic dimensions of black life, providing a long-overdue synthesis and the first extended philosophical treatment of this crucial subject.
  • The first extended philosophical treatment of an important subject that has been almost entirely neglected by philosophical aesthetics and philosophy of art
  • Takes an important step in assembling black aesthetics as an object of philosophical study
  • Unites two areas of scholarship for the first time ? philosophical aesthetics and black cultural theory, dissolving the dilemma of either studying philosophy, or studying black expressive culture
  • Brings a wide range of fields into conversation with one another? from visual culture studies and art history to analytic philosophy to musicology ? producing mutually illuminating approaches´┐Ż that challenge some of the basic suppositions of each
  • Well-balanced, up-to-date, and beautifully written as well as inventive and insightful
  • Winner of The American Society of Aesthetics Outstanding Monograph Prize 2017
