Du Bois and the Problems of the Twenty-First Century utilizes Du Boiss thought and texts to develop an informed critical theory of contemporary society. This book broadens the base of critical theory, making it more multicultural, transethnic, transgender, and non-Western European philosophy focused by placing it in dialogue with theory and phenomena that heretofore have been woefully neglected. Taking the preeminent black intellectual of the twentieth century as his primary point of departure, Reiland Rabaka identifies and analyzes several key contributions that Du Bois and the black racial tradition offer to those interested in redeveloping and racially revising contemporary critical social theory. With chapters on critical race theory, postcolonial theory, feminism, and Marxism, this volume builds bridges from Africana studies to disparate discursive communities, accessibly demonstrating Du Boiss, and the black radical traditions, contributions to a wide range of new social scientific research and radical political struggles.
