Over many decades Bernard Boxill's essays on race, social justice, reparations, and affirmative action have contributed wisdom and rigorous argument to debates in contemporary moral and political philosophy. He has inspired and mentored generations of younger African-American scholars, made evident the depth and relevance of early African-American political thought, and helped to establish and gain recognition for the Society for Blacks in Philosophy in the American Philosophy Association. An original thinker, a judicious but powerful social critic, he has also shed new light on the work of others from Kant and Locke to W.E.B. Du Bois, and Frederick Douglass
