Toward an Afrocentric Research Methodology.
Reviere, Ruth
Journal of Black Studies, v31 n6 p709-28 Jul 2001
Examines the emergent philosophy of Afrocentrism, describing its use as a basis for new orientations to the creation and interpretation of data. Suggests that the traditional Eurocentric research criteria of objectivity, reliability, and validity are inadequate and incorrect, especially for research involving human experiences. Recommends new research orientations, providing new yardsticks by which research could be better judged. (SM)
