A list of notable Black libertarians, with photos. A libertarian is a follower of libertarianism and likely a member of the Libertarian Party, the third largest political party in the United States. Libertarians believe first and foremost in the rights of the individual, that individuals "have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose." (Quoted from their party platform.)

They are often described as "Socially Liberal, Fiscally Conservative". While Republicans and Democrats may debate what government's role should be in America, Libertarians want the government to be as small and unobtrusive as possible. Many point to Thomas Jefferson as the ideal Libertarian. Today, libertarians are frequently fans of Congressman Ron Paul. It is often difficult to surmise which political party an individual belongs to. Suffice to say, the African American libertarians on this list have all exhibited libertarian beliefs in their public lives.
