Lecture 6: The Negro in the Three Americas

Part of the African American Philosophy and the African Diaspora book series (AAPAD)


This is the concluding lecture of the series. Here Locke seeks to provide a comprehensive account of the indispensable role that African descendant peoples have played throughout the Americas. It is also, in this lecture that Locke’s Inter-American philosophical orientation is most on display. Locke draws on the many insights, principles, concepts and arguments he advanced earlier in the series; specifically with regard to African Americans in the United States to offer a fuller vision of the historical and present social role of Afrodescendant peoples throughout the three Americas.
