Professor Emeritus Bernard Boxill has won the 2017 Benjamin E. Lippincott Award from the American Political Science Association for “a work of exceptional quality by a living political theorist that is still considered significant at least 15 years since the original state of publication.” The award citation calls Blacks and Social Justice (1984) “an exceptional work of deep and careful reflection…an indispensable source on the major racial issues of our time and an enduring model for how to combine rigorous theoretical argument with clear-eyed analysis of real-world controversies.”
