The Afrocentric paradigm is a revolutionary shift in thinking proposed as a constructural adjustment to black disorientation, decenteredness, and lack of agency. The philosophy of Afrocentricity as expounded by Molefi Kete Asante and Ama Mazama, central figures of the Temple School, is a way of answering all cultural, economic, political, and social questions related to African people from a centered position. There are other Afrocentric ideas as well but these are the ones propounded in texts by Professors Asante, Mazama, and the late C. Tsehloane Keto.

This book focuses on the intellectual dimension of Afrocentricity, which has aroused a great deal of interest since its inception, but has remained clouted with theoretical confusion. Writing from an Afrocentric perspective, the contributors to the volume argue that Afrocentricity is best understood as a paradigm, consisting of three distinct, but related aspects, the affective/cognitive/conative, structural, and functional.

This volume concerns itself more specifically with the affective/cognitive/conative aspect, which involves 1) the metaphysical foundations of Afrocentricity and identifies the epistemological centrality of the African cultural and historical experience as the organizing principle of the Afrocentric paradigm, and 2) the sociological dimension of the Afrocentric paradigm, namely the academic discipline of Africology, Afrocentric concepts, methodology, and methods. The essays included here address these aspects of the Afrocentric paradigm.

Contributors include Molefi Kete Asante, Danjuma Sinue Modupe, Maulana Karenga, Norman Harris, Linda James Myers, Na’im Akbar, Clenora Hudson-Weems, Nah Dove, Jerome H. Schiele, Ama Mazama, Karimu Welsh-Asante, Mwalimu J. Shujaa, and Asa Hillard.
