Black radicalism is one of the most misunderstood political philosophies that exist. Conflated with extremism; narrow versions of nationalism and; misogynistic organisations it has largely been dismissed or overlooked as the ‘evil twin on the Civil Rights Movement’. This paper will recover legacy of Black radicalism, outlining a tradition that provides a revolutionary alternative to the status quo. Black Lives Matter has captured the imagination of another generation of activists who are seeking racial justice. By re-engaging with the Black radical tradition movements can fulfil the potential for Black liberation across the African Diaspora.
