What is Afro-Existentialism?
Afro-Existentialism is a philosophy created by co-host and community psychologist, Blaine Vanteamer. It is based on his reaction to certain elements of existentialism. An influential philosophy that declares each person is a free and responsible agent determining their development through acts of the will. Vanteamer disagreed with the notion that “acts of will” are the sole determining factor in a person’s development and re-examined the philosophy through the filter of marginalized populations.
