A. Shahid Stover is an avant-garde African-American writer/philosopher/social critic and Editor-in-Chief of the Brotherwise Dispatch(brotherwise.com), an online journal focused on radical theory, social critiques and human liberation.
A rebel outsider to the academic establishment, Stover writes from a perspective of ´existential liberation theory´, a rugged and unfixed method of critique which combines philosophy, social theory, cultural criticism and historical consciousness grounded in the human condition of constitutive self-determination and spiritual revolt as exemplified in two fundamental concerns of Black existence; human ‘being’ and human liberation.
A former underground Hip Hop eMCee turned radical intellectual, A. Shahid Stover’s first book of critical theory, HIP HOP INTELLECTUAL RESISTANCE, focuses on Hip Hop aesthetics as Black cultural resistance to western imperialist oppression and racist dehumanization. Stover places important emphasis on Black ‘postmodern lumpenproletariat’ subjectivity as an authentic source for cultivating Hip Hop aesthetics and developing potentialities for radical social change.
Having studied History at Coastal Carolina University and Journalism at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Stover began writing as a freelancer for The CAROLINA TIMES(one of the oldest independent Black newspapers in America) and has also written for The SOURCE MAGAZINE of Hip Hop, Music, Culture and Politics and LEFT TURN magazine.
