In this fourteenth episode of Independent Outlook, Independent Research Fellow Jonathan J. Bean joins with Williamson Evers and Graham Walker to examine the people and ideas of the anti-racist, classical-liberal tradition of individual liberty and equality, demonstrating how it has inspired individuals to boldly advance race relations in the United States. Rooted in the Judeo-Christian natural-law tradition, classical liberals have advocated freedom from governmental interference, abolition of prejudicial law, equality under a uniform rule of law guaranteed by the Constitution, and market-based entrepreneurial opportunity. Individuals mentionend: James Forten, Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, Booker T. Washington, Zora Neale Hurston, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, Shelby Steele
