"Essentially Black" - Article by Professor Kenneth Nunn

Professor Kenneth Nunn of the University of Florida Levin College of Law recently published an interesting and provocative article, entitled “Essentially Black”: Legal Theory and the Morality of Conscious Racial Identity, in the NEBRASKA LAW REVIEW.  Professor Nunn, a self-described "Black nationalist and an African-centered scholar", responds to postmodernist and Critical Race Theory critiques of racial identity as essentialist.  In particular, he challenges the notion that race-consciousness and racial identity are morally wrong, and he highlights the negative consequences of anti-essentialism for Black communities and activists.
