Afrocentricity and the academy : essays on theory and practice ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Afrocentricity is a philosophical and theoretical perspective that emphasizes the study of Africans as subjects, not as objects, and is opposed to perspectives that attempt to marginalize African thought and experience." "The editor of this collection argues that scholars can no longer be myopic in their perceptions and analyses of race. The seventeen essays examine a wide range of variations on the Afrocentric paradigm - in history, literature, political science, philosophy, economics, women's studies, cultural studies, ethnic studies and social policy."--BOOK JACKET
