Molefi Kete Asante's Afrocentric philosophy has become one of themost persistent influences in the social sciences and humanitiesover the past three decades. It strives to create new forms ofdiscourse about Africa and the African Diaspora, impact oneducation through expanding curricula to be more inclusive, changethe language of social institutions to reflect a more holisticuniverse, and revitalize conversations in Africa, Europe, andAmerica, about an African renaissance based on commitment tofundamental ideas of agency, centeredness, and cultural location.
In An Afrocentric Manifesto, Molefi Kete Asante examinesand explores the cultural perspective closest to the existentialreality of African people in order to present an innovativeinterpretation on the modern issues confronting contemporarysociety.
Thus, this book engages the major critiques of Afrocentricity,defends the necessity for African people to view themselves asagents instead of as objects on the fringes of Europe, and proposesa more democratic framework for human relationships.
An Afrocentric Manifesto completes Asante's quartet onAfrocentric theory. It is at the cutting edge of this new paradigmwith implications for all disciplines and fields of study. It willbe essential reading for urban studies, philosophy, African andAfrican American Studies, social work, sociology, politicalscience, and communication.
