  • Reading Fear of Black Consciousness had me nodding so often and so vigorously, I got a mild case of whiplash . . .

    Robin D G Kelley, author of Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original
  • A thinker whose reflections on race have produced singular illuminations on our times . . . he draws on a wide range of colonial histories, African popular culture, aboriginal histories, contemporary films and stories, to show the critical powers of creativity in dismantling racism by the making of Black consciousness, the making of a world where breath and love and existence become possible

    Judith Butler, author of Gender Trouble
  • Striking... You will want Lewis Gordon's Fear of Black Consciousness among your primary intellectual road supplies for the future

    Katherine McKittrick, author of Demonic Grounds
