A Practical Look at Afrocentricity Pt. 1


Alli Awesui
Black Intellectualism
Postmodern Skepticism
Cornel West


In this event, hosted on the Huston-Tillotson University Campus in 1995, Aweusi is part of a panel discussing Black Afrocentricity, What does it mean? How can it be achieved? What is blocking an Afrocentric community? Aweusi discusses new scientific findings related to evolution and the degradation of the ozone layer. He is skeptical of the Eurocentric scientists and makes claims that go against established science. This brings up questions regarding Black skepticism and Black Intellectualism in the 1990s.
