Understanding Afrocentrism: Why Blacks Dream of a World without Whites.
Early, Gerald
Civilization, v2 n4 p31-39 Jul-Aug 1995
Describes the perceived failure of integration and the growing number of black Americans who are looking at the world from an African perspective instead of from the European-centered perspective that dominates American culture. The article explains Afrocentrism's appeal in giving Blacks an ideological unity, not just on color but as an expression of cultural will. (GR)
