Overview

A stepping-stone into one of the newest and least understood philosophical branches

The central topic of this cross-disciplinary work is the theory of ¬ďAfrocentricity,¬Ē which mandates that Africans be viewed as subjects rather than objects; and looks at how this philosophy, ethos, and world view gives Africans a better understanding of how to interpret issues affecting their communities. History, psychology, sociology, literature, economics, and education are explored, including discussions on Washingtonianism, Garveyism, Du Bois, Malcolm X, race and identity, Marxism, and breakthrough strategies.
