Please expand upon the arguments presented by William R. Jones, in “The Legitimacy and Necessity of Black Philosophy.” In addition, please reference the Interview on William R. Jones by George Yancy as a way to further understand the need for an African American philosophy.
Joyce Mitchell Cook was the first African American Women to receive a Ph.D. in Philosophy. What are her views of a BLACK philosophy and do you think her and William R. Jones would have agreed about there being a particular Black philosophy?
Please incorporate information from the reading/interview _from class_
on Cook, as well as the audio recording of a conference proceeding with Cook and Jones and Samuel Williams from 1976.
