Franklin’s Review Published in APA Newsletter

Posted August 16, 2011
Tags Faculty Philosophy

Professor of Philosophy A. Todd Franklin published a review of George Yancy’s book Black Bodies, White Gaze: The Continuing Significance of Race in the spring edition of the APA Newsletter on Feminism and Philosophy.

 

In his review, Franklin analyzed the way the book illuminates the existentiality of blackness and powerfully informs our notions of what it means to be black. He emphasized the way Yancy also shed considerable light on the existentiality of whiteness and culminated with a sketch of a well-needed new way of comprehending what it means to be white. Ultimately, Franklin concluded that given its astute use of testimony, autobiography, fiction and theory, Black Bodies, White Gazes stands out as a powerful example of a well-needed way of seeing and doing race differently.
