AFROCENTRISM. Debate rages today as to the facts, myths, & fantasies this concept engenders. An exceptional new work, THE NUBIAN, explores this unique cultural perspective, & its true significance. The major theme is the power of culture & spiritual connectedness in dealing with the disillusionment so prevalent in contemporary society. Released by the AZIMUTH PRESS, an Atlanta-based publisher, THE NUBIAN contains a foreword by Dr. Molefi Asante, Chairman of the Dept. of African-American Studies, Temple University. The author, Duane Smith, has extensively studied African cultures, artistic expression & spirituality; he brings these together in a compelling story of personal & family disintegration, & the value of relying on what we intuitively know...to overcome such disintegration. The lesson he teaches us is that we are victims only if we allow ourselves to be victims; we are chosen...if we choose our traditions. For order information on THE NUBIAN, call 1-800-753-3735.
