Committee: Status of Black Philosophers

Committee Charge

The committee is charged with assessing and reporting on the status of black philosophers. Among its responsibilities are to identify unfair or discriminatory practices and to advise the board and the members of the association of ways in which they may be rectified; to advise black philosophers concerning means of overcoming discrimination that they may encounter; and to make reports and recommendations to the board concerning ways in which full and meaningful equality of opportunity can be provided to all individuals who seek to study, teach, or conduct research in philosophy.

The committee also publishes the Newsletter on Philosophy and the Black Experience, the editors of which serve in an ex officio capacity on this committee.

In addition, this committee presents the Joyce Mitchell Cook award, recognizing a book written by a trailblazing black woman philosopher.
