Redding releasing book on black
philosophers on April 4th
ATLANTA, March 25,
2012, 7 p.m.
Syndicated talk radio host, award-winning journalist
and best selling author Rob Redding has unearthed two forgotten black philosophers
in his new book.
Redding's "Resurrection: A Historical Anthology of
two Forgotten African-American Philosophers" is a well researched
profile and definitive anthology of philosophers John Jasper and William Whipper.
The book offers analysis on why Jasper and Williams are philosophers and
fresh grammatically correct translations of Jasper's work. Jasper was a
former slave whose works
are found in broken English.
Gordon, a distinguished professor at Temple University,
has given the book his blessing with his foreword "The
Underside of American Philosophy."
"I offer these reflections in celebration of Mr.
Robert Redding’s resurrecting these instances of the thought of the
Reverend John Jasper and
Mr. William Whipper, two pioneers in African American thought. These
are two thinkers guided by a religious-ethical sensibility, but
their mode of struggling with them brought constantly to the fore a
passionate commitment to truth and, it can be argued, courage," Gordon writes.
Texas A&M's Dr. Tommy J. Curry, a respected expert
in Critical Race Theory, says the book "will contribute to opening
up some of the thoughts and primary material for people to think
about Black philosophy."
