Jacoby Adeshei Carter is an Associate Professor of Philosophy, and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Howard University. His research interests include Africana philosophy, social and political philosophy, value theory (applied ethics), philosophy of race, and pragmatism, especially as these topics manifest in the philosophy of Alain Locke. He is the Director of the Alain LeRoy Locke Society, author of African American Contributions to the Americas’ Cultures: A Critical Edition of Lectures by Alain Locke and co-editor of Philosophic Values and World Citizenship: Locke to Obama and Beyond. Dr. Carter is also the editor of the African American Philosophy and the Diaspora Book Series published by Palgrave/Macmillan. Presently, Prof. Carter is at work on two volumes. The first, Philosophizing the Americas: An Inter-American Discourse, is an anthology that aims to forge a dialogue between the African American, Latin American, and Caribbean philosophical traditions. The second, tentatively titled Insurrectionist Ethics: Radical Perspectives on Social Justice, is a collection of essays that address advocacy on behalf of oppressed groups to promote radical social transformation in the interest of justice.
