Revisiting W.E.B. Du Bois' theories about the problems facing Black people and utilizing modern and postmodern conceptions of identity politics, this article explores how Blackness has been articulated by several social scientists, cultural critics, and other writers. This article argues that inserting observations about intersectionality, bisexuality, and Latinidad into conceptions of Black identity may lead to more integrated analyses of Blackness.
