The question of the nature and function of a philosophy of struggle and the subsidiary questions of the purpose, means, and imperatives of struggle, of necessity, take on an added urgency at this critical juncture in our history and the history of the world. Likewise, the allied concern of how do Africana philosophers who are cultivated in and committed to a philosophy born of struggle live a tradition of resistance is informed and inspired by this same sense of urgency. For we are clearly in the midst of world-shattering changes, many of which go against our ancient and ongoing notions of the right, the just, and the good, and we understandably feel a need for critical and effective intervention to address them.
