Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096320744X, Hardcover)

Debate rages today as to the facts, myths, & fantasies this concept that Afrocentrism engenders. An exceptional new work, THE NUBIAN, explores this unique cultural perspective, & its true significance. The major theme is the power of culture & spiritual connectedness in dealing with the disillusionment so prevalent in contemporary society. The author, Duane Smith, has extensively studied African cultures, artistic expression & spirituality; he brings these together in a compelling story of personal & family disintegration, & the value of relying on what we intuitively know...to overcome such disintegration. The lesson he teaches us is that we are victims only if we allow ourselves to be victims; we are chosen...if we choose our traditions.
