Black pride is a movement encouraging people to take pride in being black, sometimes in the form of black supremacy. Related movements include black nationalism, Black Panthers, Afrocentrism and Black supremacism. Black pride has been a central theme of the originally Jamaican Rastafari movement since the second half of the 20th century. It has been described as "a rock in the face of expressions of white superiority."[1] Gary Kamiya has criticized the black pride movement, saying that to the extreme, black pride would cause people of African descent to fail to separate their personal identities from their race.[2]
