Molefi Kete Asante’s Ama Mazama: The Ogunic Presence in Africology takes the reader on a remarkable journey of Ama Mazama’s intellectual ascendency. Asante tells this story from the same spiritual center that informs her consciousness. Simply put, he gets her. His exploration of Mazama’s international stature helps solidify this profound activist scholar’s place in the discipline of Africology as well as her importance to the broader Pan-African world. This work situates Ama Mazama among the greatest African thinkers, past and present. Ama Mazama: The Ogunic Presence in Africology is a breathtaking paradigmatic maze of Afrocentric intellectualism that is grounded in the same African cultural framework and cosmology that inspire Ama Mazama’s genius. This is a must read!
Molefi Kete Asante’s Ama Mazama: The Ogunic Presence in Africology is an open sore on the wound of continuous racial injustice that Professor Ama Mazama has fought against all through her life. She has followed in the footsteps of Frances Cress Welsing as one of the unsung heroes of our times.
