Andrew J. Douglas

Andrew J. Douglas is a professor of political science at Morehouse College, where he teaches courses in political theory and is affiliated with interdisciplinary programs in Africana Studies and international comparative labor studies. He is the author of three books: In the Spirit of Critique: Thinking Politically in the Dialectical Tradition (2013); W. E. B. Du Bois and the Critique of the Competitive Society (2019); and, with Jared Loggins, Prophet of Discontent: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Critique of Racial Capitalism (2021).

Even as they carve out space for Black scholarship, established universities remain deeply complicit in racial capitalism. We must think beyond them.
