About this product
- DescriptionAfrocentricity is a philosophical and theoretical perspective that emphasizes the study of Africans as subjects, t as objects, and is opposed to perspectives that attempt to marginalize African thought and experience. Afrocentricity became popular in the 1980s as scores of African American and African scholars adopted an Afrocentric orientation to information. The editor of this collection argues that as scholars embark upon the 21st century, they can longer be myopic in their perceptions and analyses of race. The sixteen essays examine a wide range of variations on the Afrocentric paradigm in the areas of history, literature, political science, philosophy, ecomics, women's studies, cultural studies, ethnic studies and social policy. The essays, written by professors, librarians, students and others in higher education who have embraced the Afrocentric perspective, are divided into four sections: Pedagogy and Implementation, Theoretical Assessment, Critical Analysis, and Pan Africanist Thought.
