Interview with Professor Leonard Harris

Leonard Harris


My mother’s family were migrants from Birmingham, Alabama and my father, a migrant from Tuskegee, Alabama where he used to walk around George Washington Carver’s (famous scientist) lab before he migrated north to Cleveland, Ohio. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I promote the voices of Afro-American people. My first anthology, Philosophy Born of Struggle, Afro-American Philosophy from 1917 staged the voices of African-Americans, with their philosophies about the nature of experience, explanation, interpretation, justified methods of protest, identity, culture, liberation and existential being.
