An extraordinary scholar has written on Molefi Asante—the most prominent Afro-centric scholar in the world—elucidating the impact of the multiple knowledges that emerged around his work and legacy. This is a rewarding book that will facilitate engagement with a critical paradigm in the study of Africa. It offers deep understanding of African people and the urgency of situating their realities and struggles within epistemologies tied to power structures.
