Abstract

This essay is both a response to symposium commentaries on the author’s book Freedom as Marronage and a wider exploration into the meaning of freedom. It argues that marronage is a conception of freedom emanating from the black radical tradition whose heuristic value spans epochs and intellectual traditions. The essay discusses black politics, Afro-Caribbean thought, the meaning of radical, and the contours of the black radical tradition; posits marronage as a suggestive philosophy and political imaginary to radicalize this tradition in more useful ways than alternative contemporary discourses; and responds thematically to the most challenging critiques to its theorization.
