About the Author

Molefi Kete Asante is Professor of African American Studies at Temple University.


"An Afrocentric Manifesto is the most comprehensive response to those critics that charge Afrocentricity is a closed system. Building on the work of Cruse, Nkrumah and Karenga, Asante defines Afrocentricity as a paradigmatic intellectual perspective linking research to ethical praxis."
Charles P. Henry, University of California, Berkeley

"In An Afrocentric Manifesto, Molefi Kete Asante has accomplished something quite extraordinary in addressing a wide range of issues shaping current discourse on Afrocentricity and related themes."

Mekada Graham, University of Oklahoma
