Review

"This marvelous volume, African Intellectual Heritage, is indispensable for anyone interested in the life of the mind. Molefi Asante and Abu Abarry are to be congratulated for this fine gift." - Cornel West, Harvard University "This impressive work shows a profound appreciation for African intellectual ideas." - H. Patrick Swygert, President, Howard University "Remarkable for its extensive coverage of the African world, African Intellectual Heritage brings together the information for which scholars, students, and the general public have been waiting. Mary McLeod Bethune, Julius Nyerere, Marcus Garvey, and Ptahhotep in the same book! This is a bold and positive enterprise." - Rebecca Hankins, Senior Curator, Amistad Research Center, Tulane University

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Eric K. Pavlat on December 9, 2003
Format: Paperback
This hefty volume doesn't waste any pages! From ancient Egyptian poetry & history to the modern origins of Kwanzaa, this one has it all. A tremendous resource for students or teachers of history, literature, culture, or religion. My only complaint is the omission of the prolific St. Augustine, but his work is widely available elsewhere.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Byron E. Price on December 31, 1999
Format: Paperback
The book is an excellent source of African and Diasporian thought, scholarship, and epistemology. The authors do and excellent job juxtaposing the various creation stories using content analysis to show the parallells between the various creation stories. In addition, the authors do an excellent job of highlighting the various talented African scholars across the globe. The book is appropriately named and the content in the book definately lends itself to erudition.

Essential reading for those that resonate with the black experience. This book gives an accomplished account of what I cam only describe as as a cannon of black thought through out the ages.

A beautiful sampling of many known and less known writers and thinkers from Africa and the African American diaspora. A must for any personal library and a great study resource.
