Black feminist philosophy is a version of feminism whose
primary focus concerns, at least to some degree, Black women from within African diasporic contexts. It has
the aim of understanding problems facing Black women along with identifying
and/or uncovering liberation strategies. It also includes work that seeks to highlight the ways Black women's thought illuminates broader philosophical questions and issues. Least one think that Black feminist
philosophy only concerns oppression, it also concerns celebrations of the lives
and work of Black women across African diasporic contexts. These investigative
paths lead to particular social ontologies, epistemologies, and pragmatic
orientations, for example.
